It gave me the impression of being a power unit mounted on a tractor frame also.Jim Becker wrote:This looks like they used a fully dressed power unit, as the hood/grill etc. all look like standard Continental parts.

Brought back a memory. YMCA has a camp/resort in our area (only one or two like it in the U.S.). There is a lodge where you can rent rooms (no tv or telephone) and also youth camps. When my son was working there we could get discounts and Joann and I stayed there a few days year before last. The camp gets large numbers of kids from St. louis, many of whom have never been in the country before. Since I can't walk too good I got permission to bring my golf cart to get around. Many of the kids saw my "*.?-!.* cub owner" logo on the roof and asked "do you really own a cub, a real bear cub?" It would have been a great opportunity to teach the kids a little aobout country life, but unless you are an employee of the YMCA they strongly discourage you from having much contact with the children there, liability issues I assume. For more info on the camp go to http://www.ymcaoftheozarks.org/Rudi wrote:JB:

This looks like they used a fully dressed power unit, as the hood/grill etc. all look like standard Continental parts. Red Seal was a Continental trade name. That model engine was first produced in 1936 and was still in my most recent book (1959). The bare engine was rated 49 bhp at 2,400 rpm.
