Hello everyone,

Thank you

It is filled with an epoxy so I don't know what goes where.

The color of the wires are: red, black, blue, green, yellow and white and are all the same size wires.

If it come down to it I will make my own transistor ignition as per the diagram I have seen here.

Fiske's Brown Jr 60B


Well I think most of you know the history regarding Mr Fiske Hanley. A very nice gentleman whom I have admired for a few years now after researching his history.
This very engine won the Nationals in 1937 in Detroit, Mi and Fiske has had it all these years. When Fiske went off to war his mother gave the model to one of the neighborhood kids but removed the engine before hand.
Fiske also sent me the original box, some extra fuel tanks and spark plugs.

This is definately the highlight of my collection simply because of the history behind the package.
Not sure why, but I had the package in my hand 10 days after sending the payment this in itself was a rare treat and has never happened to me before
Thanks very much Fiske for selling me this great piece of history for my collection

Cool beans Bill!!!! I haven't seen a exhaust stack on a Brown Like that one either. Gave me an idea or two for making one.

I have figured out that the cool fuel tank is from a 1934 Hurleman Aristocrat 60.

Those are a couple of really nice pick-up's, Bill. I especially like the Brown Jr. that once won the Nats. With all the provenance that one has, you must be quite proud. To say I'm jealous would be an understatement.

Here is my latest. It took awhile coming from Canada but it's finely in my sweaty palms... Eh, they're not really sweaty. Anyway, it's a 1946 Contestor D 60 R. As you can see it's it pretty good shape. Definitely not pristine but the decals still look good and so does the black painted portion. Based on the scratches and dents I'd say it's been in a couple of rough landings but still holding up pretty well. It took me awhile to fool my "fool proof" camera into focusing in enough on the fuel mixture decal so you could read it. It's a little dark but definitely legible. So, without further ado, here are the photos.

See.... I need to be more observant. I was so impressed with the first photo set I didn't pay much attention to the second. Sorry about that, my friend.
