That engine isn't even hit and miss. Wonder if the seller knows that or if it doesn't run right?? It's an IHC model M with some odd carb rigged on it.

Got to be a pretty rough lawn if you need to seat belt yourself in. :)

I was wondering that too. Is it a split switch/outlet used as an ignition switch?

Do you think some of these folks build this stuff to get us going?

It is a unique build. A lot of repurposed things on there.

Ah, Doug!  Don't you know that calling something hit and miss automatically makes it sell better?!?

 

That carb looks to be a car carb of some sort with the fuel inlet in the top.  I wonder if it is one of the hundred and two pot metal knockoffs that were produced during the 1920's for Fords and all the other makes?

That proves this machine is a hybrid.  Prius Roller, probably.
