Briggs 2 hp roasting by an open fire.  I repainted the 2 hp off my Waterloo 15 with Tremclad High Heat gloss black.  It needs heat to cure properly.  It is -15*C (5*F) outside and the wood stove has been stoked all day,  so, ...

I just love wood heat. One word of caution though, is that engine setting on something flammable? Sparks would worry me or is the door open just for the photo?

Thank you for your concerns, but the engine was never lonely.  It made an excellent excuse for lounging around sipping some homemade wine.  The door was closed until the sparking died down.  And, yes, my wife would have clubbed me if anything bad had happened.  As an aside, the heating process revealed a leaking breather cover gasket that & would have missed until it was run.  Much easier to clean & repair at this stage.
