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 2016.

I'm one year older at the three-quarter century mark.  Still kickin'!

This year it's a little cooler and threatening rain here in the Redneck Riviera.  Being lazy, I only dragged out two of my eangines and ran them on New Year's Eve 2016.

I've gotten one more engine built and running, The Rotary Valve Engine.  I hope to have it show-ready before spring.

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

Happy New Year 2017!
