Description: I post this ad again, this time with a price listed. A person was purchasing this engine but his finances fell through and he couldn't make the deal work.

This is an extremely rare engine and is one of possibly 3 original portable Ottos known to exist. The trucks under the engine are proprietary to Otto and were built by them. So you couldn't find a set of generic trucks and "build one". The tank on top is all original and it has a very unique cooling fan that is similar to a forge blower that is run by a belt from the flywheel. Again, this is all original equipment to this engine. The tin work is original and in excellent condition.

The engine has the original clutch pulley on it and has an original Lonergan oiler for the cylinder that goes with it. The wood on the battery box / seat will need replacing.

I have never ran this engine but know that it was running approx. 25 years ago. I think it could be going with a few hours work.

The engine is pretty much as found on the farm or "barn fresh". You can make it as pretty or original as you want.

I need to move some things out of my buildings as I don't have room to turn around. I have too much junk (I should be selling the junk and keeping this engine.....but for some reason I kinda like junk....)

There are few engines built that create the interest or raise the eyebrow as much as an Otto. This is one of the more unique ones you can find.

I'm not really interested in any trades (well, unless you have something really neat that I might like) as I don't have the room to store them. So, this is pretty much a Buy Here Pay Here type offering.

Since the other deal fell through I'm no longer holding this for anyone. The first one who says they want it will own it.

Email or text is best.
