I'm the person who rescued Joe Tochtrop castings at his death. . I saved a few sets of his Economy style engine casting sets for my own use. As time has passed I'm not going
to ever get to all of them so I'm sharing the last 5 now 3 of the remaining castings as pictured. . . In these remaining sets, Joe's 6 spoke flywheels are replaced with 7 inch curved spoke castings, originally from Joe's Atkinson engine. I have made well over a dozen of these and added numerous changes to Joe's plans which make a much better running model. I have included my drawings for these modifications, which include a tapered crankshaft for truer running flywheels, Head modification for an O-ring head gasket, piston modification for O-ring seal, and precise cam- crank- governor gear dimensions.
This set includes Joe's original 4 page blueprints with parts list. There are Iron castings for 2 flywheels , 1 pulley and 1 crankshaft. Aluminum castings are for base, water jacket, crank bearing caps, crank guard, head, piston, connecting rod, cam and gear assembly base, governor detent lever, as well as a brass casting I used for the carburetor.

The finished engine in the photo is shown only to give you an example of how the curved spoke flywheels compliment Joe's original engine design.
Price is $495 which includes shipping and basic USPS insurance and tracking in a flat rate box USA ONLY
Payment is Paypal friends and family or USPS postal money order. NO personal checks or other internet payment sources please.
I will ship within 3 days of receipt of payment and provide you with the tracking information at that time.

I do have a few more individual castings but not of all the parts in this set.
