RE: What engine do i have??

That's a Homelite, if there's a bridge in the exhaust port it's a 25cc, no bridge (and no signs of being ground away) it will be a 30cc

RE: fun and simple weedwacker project!

This would be better suited to the conversion board that you've already posted in (it'll probably be moved in the morning if I had to guess...)
