Mitch not only have I never seen one of those I have never seen any belt drive head in this field. I could be interested but you may not like what I would be willing to pay as I would only keep it in the "junkyard" for spare parts in case I ever saw another one. You might be able to get more locally up there for it if someone was selling that style in that area for awhile. How quiet/loud is it?

Lets see if he can get his birthday present :D
Here is what I worked on today, the common direct drive version, nobody else within 100 miles touches them. This one needs a crank and a rod.

AWWWWW, look at those cute little pistons. :lol:
Could you post a picture with a ball point pen next to the parts so we can see if the pump is as tiny as it looks?

Found this at a garage sale. Had a price tag on it for $15.00, bought it an left quickly before anyone changed their mind. It’s an Admiral, made in the early 50’s. It has vacuum tubes & paper wrapped capacitors. Missing the needle for the record player. Haven’t plugged it in yet cause the power cord is dry rotted. The case is Bakelite. Don’t know what I’m going to do with it.

Son's first engine swap....ok, I helped a little ;)

Minibike engine died so the 2.5hp is out and the 6.5hp unused chipper engine is in...plus a torque converter.....it just fit with major modes to the air box and exhaust and then smacking the top of the gas tank to get enough clearance to remove the gas cap (oops).

He was grinning ear to ear when realized it's now hard NOT to wheelie it.

Finished the oven and learned an important lesson about how caustic some cement products can be....but it came out nice, Lana is happy, and my skin will heal.
