Another lawn ornament.
Dragged this out of the bush where it has been laying for decades, it was put there when the crank shaft broke.
It's what known as a hit & miss engine.
I have not been able to determine the maker of this engine as there are no markings on it.
Most engines of this type had a horizontal positioned cylinder, very few were made in the vertical orientation.
Could date from the late 1800's to the early 1900's
