    Hi. Has anyone here got a ironhorse stationary engine? Trying to find out a bit about them and possibly a manual.
    Thanks

    A picture would help.
    There was a Johnson Iron horse which is a small air cooled engine often attached to a generator, these were made in America and I believe manuals are available in the US if you search on the web.

    Hi Philip. I haven’t actually got the engine here yet to take a pic. As soon as possible I will. Yes it is a Johnson iron horse 514 series I believe. Thanks for the info.

    “IF” we are talking about the small charging sets , I’ve always known them as the CHORE horse , never heard of them as IRON horse.

    A photograph of the whole engine would help identify it and what magneto it has.

    Jensales do a reproduction Johnson Iron Horse manual which you can download, but it is not cheap.

    Another option is to try some of the Govt surplus stores , those that have been going for some time bought hundreds of these , and numerous spares..well worth a try.
