what is this....can you help.....

Post by mike d on Mon Feb 14 2011, 11:57

HI ALL...
A mate of mine dropped this round last week,he wants me to get it going for him....
I've not been well,so I've only taken photos today of the engine..
theres no markings/numbers anywhere on the engine....it used to belong to a friend of his that past away.....
if you can shed any light please can you let me know,so i can pass it on to him...
there is a faint tickle from the ht lead,so don't think it will need to much..







many thanks....regards...mike d...

stretch of the neck suggests bernard, possibly a WO or something like that? i'm not clued up on bernards.

tasty engines though, the WO was sometimes known as "the engine in the box" as it had a casing fitted.

Cheers.

Lucky so in so, yes it is a Bernard w0, well could be a conord f0 but at that time Bernard owned the conord company. There about 1 1/2hp and were fitted to pumps among many other things, and they are one of my faves, a advert in sem didn't even find me a complete one! They are on my to buy list lol

Do a search for moteur Bernard and that should bring up some hits, and Google translate should be able to help with the French forums!

The W1/2/3 are quite a lot bigger then the W0, the bigger ones with the cast exhaust dont half thump away nicely though!

W1

HI ALL....

The BERNARD WO is now up and running...
Ive spoken to my mate and now its all running hes going to keep it.....
so for all those who made enquires about if it was for sale, i think this has answered your questions...
thanks for all your interest in the engine
i even had a fella phone me with an offer on it(don't know were he got my number from)
but although it was a cracking offer(well i thought it was) my mate wont sell....

many thanks...regards...mike d....

Nice little engine, should make the owner happy, will need to take the cover off to show the public the lovely over head valve arraignment inside.

I always want to paint one the french rugby colours, blue outside with a white inside Very Happy

the WO has finally gone,its been here for ages...
i got it running and adjusted everything,told the fella to come and get it....
never got back to me so Ive sold it now....
to bloody late now......not messing about anymore...
the fella owed me money.so know Ive left him a message and said don't worry about it....
as Ive sold you engine,it was given to him for scrap anyway..
so now the debt is sorted.......
the moral of this story is if you own money pay it back,or it mite come back and bite you in the bum.... Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
