Are you talking about Henry Ford's first stationary engine? Or just any Henry Ford engine?

There's been quite a lot of +/- "original" Henry Ford engines, at least a few hundreds, might be far more. See
Leon Ridenour
4610 Sunflower Rd
Knoxville, TN 37909
865-584-9759

He asks $40 for just the plans, but will include
a couple of hard to find parts for another $4
that was 6 years ago, things might have changed. But L. Ridenour was assembled his 67th engine, many years ago

It would be very interesting to me how many 'full size' Ridenour engines are known to be built..
Looks like 71 so far on this thread.

pss I tried to post movies of mine but I guess the file was too big
