Hello all, I have been a lurker on the forum for a while but finally have something worth posting. I recently purchased a pile of scrap at a farm auction and it had a lot of old parts, including frames, flattop V8 heads, manifolds, etc. One of the more interesting finds was what I believe is a Star engine manufactured in 1923. It isnt locked up and appears to be in good shape. I dont have any use for it and was wondering if anyone here could provide a good resource for more information on it so that I could work out exactly what it is and what it would be worth to someone who would like it. I also found what seems to be a 1932 Model A engine which also will freely turn, but the head on that one is not in good shape. Thank you in advance, sorry if I posted in the wrong section!
