Hello there.  In spite of your best efforts, you've blundered into Eldens Engines, otherwise known as....
Elden's Junky Web Page

(It ain't fancy but it gets the job done!)
Have a look around!  You just might find something interesting.

 
For Us Gearheads........
Life's just a bowl of nuts and bolts!


New Year's Eve 2017.
Well, here it is again - a new year is upon us.  Since it was a bit chilly out (58F - 14.5C), I didn't drag but one engine out, The Non-McVickerish Engine.  It's a bit
early, too, around 11am EST because it's supposed to rain later today.
For the past six months or so, I haven't been too active here but I promise to try to do better in 2018.

We here at Hoyt-Clagwell & Company wish you and yours....

Happy New Year 2018!
