As a service to Utterpower’s Friends, I am sharing the first word of a sale: “There’s a new 16/1 Metro up for sale today in Easley North Carolina, zip code 29640.” The owner has had this in storage since it was purchased some years back. Larry isn’t a mechanic and he replaced the injection pump and injector thinking that would be a good idea. Larry also spent $200 getting the stover wheels balanced. The engine has been run on a small wood frame for a few minutes, otherwise it is new.
Larry has no way to help you load. He assures me that you can back up a truck or trailer to the 16/1, but he has no lift. As you know, you can move the world on pipe rollers, timbers, and ‘come alongs’ ; one need remember, these are top heavy, and larry’s home made wooden frame should help.
The price is $2200 or best offer, here’s your chance to get a lot of cast iron at a reasonable price, and you can own a preban engine!
For those who might know Off Gridder ‘Ken Gardner’ in Montana, he said the Metro 16/1 was his favorite engine used at his homesite, I think he was running WVO in it, and used it up until a fire attempted to incinerate it.
Larry has a lot of projects going at the young age of 75, I think he’s motivated to sell, he says the 16/1 is really more engine that he needs.
