Mike,

Thats a lovely looking engine. Are you going to keep it as it is? I have seen a similar set up before, with a dealer local to me.

I hope you enjoy

Nice little set up ther.

What voltage is that kicking out?

It looks good without a lick of paint, Id leave that engine in its working clothes.

HI GAVIN....

im keeping the engine and generator as is....its a 1927 witte 2 1/2hp b series engine driving a 110 volt generator with 12 15watt bulbs...
ive had some sign writing put across the top of the frame work...next job is to get a roof made for it so it will look like a mini steamer..then make a chimney so the steam can escape out of the hopper...
also have got to make it a steerable engine as it has no steering at the mo,i know a fella who can help me with all this....
should look good when finished....
all my mates that have seen it say it looks the dogs bits....
must take a picture of it at night so you can see all the lights,as that are all colored now and not plain ones...

many thanks for your comments.....

regards.........mike d.
