Our chapter has had an opportunity to assist with a local estate disbursal and in the process ended up with a really nice 1922 engine/transmission. The bottom line is that it is a very low hour engine, torn down due to a broken transmission drum. We've gone through it, have it running on a engine stand and it's now ready for this special charity raffle. Proceeds will go to the three youth charities that we have supported in the past: MTFCI Youth Scholarships, MTFCA Museum Youth Activities and Piquette Avenue Plan Youth Activities.
It will come complete with an NH Carburetor, new Exhaust Manifold, Starter, Generator, even the oil in the crankcase! If you are able to attend the Winter Tour, you can hear it run on our run stand! Additional information about it can be found on our local website: http://www.tinlizziefl.com/Winter-Tour.html
You might not need it right now, but maybe you know someone that does? I also wonder if some of the chapters out there might be interested in "sharing" a spare engine? Please pass along this information to anyone you feel might be interested. Delivery must occur at the Winter Tour so you may need to arrange for someone to pick it up for you.
We are accepting money and sending back ticket stubs right now! $25 each or 5 for $100. This could be a cheap engine for someone, and the proceeds will go to a good cause.
