I'm not a collector and need some guidance. My father, who is passed away, used to work at Empire Garden tractor in Windsor Ontario. When it closed down in the early 50's he purchased a Briggs and Stratton model Z engine with intentions of using it. He never did use it. It's still in my mother's garage, attached to the original skid, never been used. I determined from the serial number that it was manufatured in 1943. I don't believe it's seized. What I need to know is what I can do with it. It's not an item that is widely in demand but It might be quite valuable to someone with a particular need, or for parts. I'd feel like a criminal if I just took it to a scrap yard. Shipping such an item would be a considerable expense. So please, if someone would be so kind as to give me some advice on what to do with a 70 year old engine, I would be grateful.
I've created an album with a couple of pictures if anyone is interested.
To the moderators - I hope I'm posting this in the correct location. The intent of the post is not for selling, I'm just looking for some help.
