Hercules ZXB engine- Avery V 1949

Postby staninlowerAL » Wed Jan 15, 2014 10:41 pm

I need 4 exhaust valves and 8 keeper pins for this engine and maybe rings. Anyone know of a source where this can be purchased? Thanks, Stan

Internet search found that Steiner may have parts and that Minneapolis Moline "V" used the same engine. I have found, no longer available parts for a specific engine, by finding out what other engine or machine used the same part.

Odd ball engines were usually built with standard parts. If you can not find a supplier, you will need to measure current engine's needed parts - - - then research the part using the dimensions/measurements.

Edit: It may take a lot of effort to find the needed parts, but they are out there.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Minneapolis Moline bought Avery, and used the same parts as the Avery.

Our Leader tractor lists 4 sources for Hercules engine parts:
Jerry Biro
P O Box 206
Martinsbury, OH 43037
1 740 745 1475

Engine Power Source, Inc.
Pineville N C
1 800 374 7522

Howard Hill
9215 St Rt 303
Windham, OH 44288
1 330 326 2671

M & M Surplus Sales
Chester N Y
1 845 469 3597

I've never had any dealings with any of these suppliers, but maybe they can help you out. It's getting pretty hard to find some parts for Hercules.

Thanks for the information. This project looks like it's going to come together. Progress is slow but steady. Hope to have it running in a couple of weeks. Stan
