Yes. We got the one running and ran it around a little bit. The 2nd one had no spark but everything else seemed in order. I tried to switch the magnetos but the one was keyed opposite of the other (tabs vs. slots on the mag). I pulled the magneto off of a McCormick Deering 15-30 which fit, but it wasn't producing any spark either. Oh well, we at least had fun with the one. It needs a carburetor cleaning/rebuild as at the end it would only run under almost full choke. The carbs on both are Kingston Model 'L's (patent date MAR 3, 1915). I need to do some research, but I did see that very similar Kingston carburetors were used on Ford Model T's.

I should add that both of these have Pickering flyball governors that I'm pretty sure were added on (not available from the factory). Both seem to operate as they should. The Smokstak forum has some discussion on rebuilding them should that ever become necessary.
