 2.5 hp @ 3800 RPM Serial #1004

Most of the motors produced, of this first year model, were equipped with a fuel tank that encircled the flywheel. A few early motors, including this one, were fitted with a "square" style tank similar to the tanks found on prior Thor engines.

I acquired this motor, in the condition shown, from another collector in 1986. I did get it to run but it seemed to have a carburation problem. It was set aside. I hope to get back to it in the near future and try to resolve the running problem and give it a bit of a clean up.
