Found an old hit and miss engine today,but need help with what it is.It has a brass tag on top of it with a serial number on it 253696.Below that it says RPM 550 HP 1 1/2E.Has a hopper on top for water,single cylinder,with 2flywheels.Also had a little hand crank you could hook on the crank to crank it over with.Looked to be red in color,with maybe some yellow on the side of the hopper.Had a electrical unit of some sort on the side that said Webster Tri Powwer Ocsilator.Anyone have an idea what kind of motor this and what it might be worth?Thanks.

Thanks Guys,looked up a pic of an Economy,that's definitely what it is.Engine looks to be all there,spins over,looks like it would run.Not mounted on anything but a couple of pieces of old wood blocks.I could probably get it for 100.,owner passed away,out of state children want it gone.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

That's an ok deal. It has a mag so you are way ahead. If it works even better. I bought my dad a Stover (I thought they made the Economy, but I must be wrong) CT-2 that didn't have the mag and came in two buckets. It was like $250 and I paid way too much. I have learned a lot since then.

A picture is worth 1000 (or more) words to help ID an engine. All engines had/could have the parts you described. The best indicator is the mag, but there were only about 3 major mag mfgs at the time.

All engines could have been a model E?

Sounds an awful lot like an Economy, they were made by Hercules. Has a Webster magneto. Price wise it's tough to say without more info, is it running, any cdw's, repainted, on a cart, etc. They are a very common but popular engine. Best case scenario one might bring $800.
