Stock #10-A-114  16hp @ 4200RPM  Ser. #1975-2520

These motors were sold by Firestone tire stores and were made by Scott-Attwater.  They tend to be difficult to keep in working order because of an oddly located and difficult to service water pump.  This motor has an engine mounted speedometer called a Knot-O-Meter.  I got this motor from a New York collector in 1995.  I first tried to get it in running order in 2004 by replacing the water pump and some ignition parts.  It ran some, but not quite right.  I went back and did some more ignition work in 2009 and it now seems to run fine.
