The Damage!
































Welcome to my IHC Famous engine site. I bought this engine back in August of 2002 right after returning from the Portland Gas Engine and Tractor show. The fellow must have seen me coming as as things would have it I had a    real basket case on my hands, of course in all fairness to the Seller when   you buy an engine that is almost a century old it might just be normal to have  a 10 inch splits in the water jacket? I will catalog the progress of my restoring this beat up 100+ year old 3 HP International Harvester Famous Hit and Miss engine. The first time I tried to start it I noticed water trickling out of the  exhaust port, so the rebuild process begins! Please come back and check   on my progress!
