Jensen 55 twin cylinder engine only has been sold.
« on: August 08, 2019, 05:15:36 pm »
This older style Jensen 55 engine only is SOLD. It moves smoothly and freely. It will self-start using breath power, for what thatís worth. Asking $75 obo, USPS priority shipping is $15. Itís a fixer-upper, last pic shows worn plating on flywheel. Slightly bent reversing lever has been removed but is included. The thingy that keeps the lever engaged is missing. I  hope a forum member can restore this to its former glory.   SOLD 8/9/2019

There is a lot of weight, I shipped a Stuart BB down your way last summer and it was over $80 USD  :-\

I do have a newer (light blue) orphan 55 like this. If you're interested, maybe we could work out a trade for an Aussie/NZ engine  ;)

Sadly, I was off doing other things when this came up, so I'm way behind the curve.

However, having it head off to Bruce is probably the very next best thing, rather than getting it myself, so we'll just see what comes of this!  ;c)
