I ran into 2 twins this morning just by happenstance. I went with some friends from church to help another church member move. We stopped at a local small engine shop and I being like most of you headed for the "rusty-crusty" section. I was surprised when I looked and found 2 of them sitting there. One has the engine pulled out and the heads are off of it but it is free. It is a steel wheeled model. The other is a rubber tired model and the engine is in it and it too is free. This one has what looks to be a brand new carb on it. What the original looks like on them I do not know so I cannot tell how accurate it is. The motor that is off lays in the snow and is laying on the carb side frozen in the ground so I cannot see it. There is a Wico magneto on the rubber tired one and the other magneto I cannot tell what it is but it is there. There is no attachment on either of these but they look to be complete back to where the implement hooks up to them. $200 bucks would buy both of them. The one even has the original starting crank with it. I think it's a good deal but just don't know if the Mrs. would go for it considering all the money I am spending on my 107 Cub Cadet and the DC Case at the moment. I would like to have them though as we had one that laid in the scrap pile when I was a kid. It never ran but I think it would cool to have one again to fix up. I think one good one could be made of the two.
Good deal or not? I would think the Wico mag would be worth at least half of that a piece and the carb should be worth something. What is the opinion of those who already have a twin? Thanks for any help.
