Hello all.
I have recently purchased a Western Launch and Engine Company, 2 1/2 HP engine. This engine was built in Mishawaka, Indiana prior to 1905.

It has a carburetor / vaporizer that has Heigter cast on it's side.

I am in need of a cork float for this carb and would appreciate any information anyone might have about this.

Thanks!

Chip, Take a look at theduckblind.com They sell high density cork in blocks cut to order. You might try experimenting with thier acrylic sealer also-just a thought.

Send an e-mail to OTTO@DOL.NET. Ask Dave for a telephone number or e-mail for Paul Gray. Paul makes excellent plastic modern floats for carburetors. He may be able to help you.

Sorry fellows,
Make that a HEITGER carburetor.
I made a typo error.

Here are some pictures of the 2 1/2 HP Western Launch and Engine Company motor that I just bought.

It has a Heitger carb.

I will be taking better pictures of it soon.

This is the engine that would have been installed in my 1904 Western Launch!

Search DUCHESS on this site for information about her.

What is the fate of the launch as I am in the market for a 16 to 18 ft launch (it can be a major project type)

There is a drilled and tapped hole in the upper section of the swing arm timer for my Western engine.
Is there supposed to be a kill button of some sort there?
Are they available?
Can anyone send me a schematic for how this engine should be wired?
Thanks,
Chip
