Does anybody know what engine these castings make ?
« on: March 25, 2019, 05:42:23 PM »
I got a line on these castings without drawings.  I've picked them up on the hope someone can identify what they make and can help me obtain a set of drawing.

The appear to be of "Breich" origin (from the "B" cast into the frame) but that's a guess.

Hello , i think it is a Paul Breisch ( spelling?) little brother or Lil Brother. I made one several years ago and all of the castings shown in your photo are as i remember them.

Flywheels are too big for a Lil Brother as they are 4.5" . Hired man has 6" as per the photo

Also the Little Brother has a one piece water hopper and the the head is quite a bit different.
The head is much more simple on the LB.

So we're thinking 'Breisch' hired man?  Anyone have a set of drawings they are willing to copy?
