Enfield HO MKIV Barn find

Post by pacemaker500 on Wed Jun 16 2010, 13:23

Found this old engine in Shropshire, looks to be fairly complete but is seized. Has anyone got one of these as i think there is some pipework missing from the exhuast ports to somewhere..?

Need to recover it from broken down barn and wow is it heavy.....

An update on the above, its only 5 odd years...Engine recovered and now un-seized; the problem was flywheel to outer casing corrosion. Its being worked on and will be running soon one hopes.

Enfield HO Engines

Post by pacemaker500 on Thu Jun 17 2010, 12:37

Thanks for the pointers Steve.

I have seen the one video but not the other. It would interesting to know what the evolution of these engines are i.e. changes between MK 1 to 4. This engine seems to have the exhuast port at the opposite end of the cylinder head to the starting handle to that shown on the video.

If you look at the 3rd picture and bottom RHS, you can see the RH cylinder exhuast port.. You may also see some pipe work (small bore copper) which enters top of the port (same other side) I guess some sort of sensor, but the commoned end goes somewhere I have yet to identify.
