Last nite I started the repair of a 6 HP York

engine for a friend, It's cracked all the way

around the bore and 1/2 way around the outside.

Excuse the ignorance, but York engine? Is that of the hit-miss variety or something else?

George I bow to your expertise and skill! Growing up we had an older fellow (older than me at least) that was a master machinist for Peerless Saw in Columbus, OH (they are still around, now located in Groveport, OH). He could weld or fix about anything, he got all our odd ball problems we couldn't deal with. Not many of these guys around any more, for sure.

W_B ,

York engine , made in york ,pa . Whether it is a hit and miss or a throttle governed ,I don't know as I have not seen the whole engine yet. From what I have learned they were made from the 190's to the mid teens .

I will get some more photos up as I get them, I do have a picture of the sleeve that we are going to install. I do have one of the sleeve that we took out.

JR,

Pronouncing it dead is the easy way out .

The corner store doesn't have one or any parts,

as it is a york engine made somewhere in the

early teens.

After it is welded then it needs to be bored

and sleeve made ane installed .

Sure wish you lived closer to me so I could hang out on the days I'm not working and learn.......Over the years I learned alot from an old guy who had his shop about 5 miles from me. He was always my go to guy when I ran into something I couldn't do or didn't have the tools to do myself. I don't think I ever went into his shop and spent less than 2 or 3 hours just watching him work, and talking to him and learning as much as I possibly could about anything I could. It makes me feel good to see young guys like Lanse on here that are instrested in this kind of thing and are willing to ask and learn too.

George, is repairing obscure part no longer made the bulk of your business? I've seen several of them on this site, as well as yours, and you do very well at it, but I was curious.

Bob,

I do about 1/2 of regular work and the rest

is the odd ball things. They are more fun.

You've got an older Lincoln Idealarc 250 with what looks like a High frequency box on top? Also looks like an Everett(sp) chop saw and an SAE 400/300 Lincoln behind you in the welding picture? Is that a spray torch hanging up in the background too? Those are all great tools to have. Is the small MIG just for sheet metal?

Stick,

You are about correct on most items, the big lincoln is a 600 anp machine and it is

there to run the roller and front wheel welder.

In behind it there is a crank welder (from

standard crankshaft),both machines are sub-

arc. Have 2 sizes of small powder torches and

in the machine shop I have both wire spray and

powder spray (metalizing )systems.

george

I saw an SAF 600 sell at an auction several years ago for $150. I'm not sure if it was complete or not but it sure seemed cheap. I imagine it sucks the power pretty good.

You should see the other parts of George"s shop with the the overhead crane or another part with the mills and lathes. The best part is he know how to use them all. That garage is more fun than any place a wrench spinner is legally allowed to go to. I know because I have been there twice.
