New Bamford Open Crank

Post by Hughesy on Mon Feb 21 2011, 19:41

Hello all
As some of you may know i got this engine off ebay a week ago.

Its a 4 hp open crank bamford.













As can be seen on the photo of the lug it has been broken off, wasnt told about this when i bought the engine. so was a surpirse when i was told.

Also someone has made a nice job of making the hp into 40hp instead of 4hp

Just need to get a water drain tap, a fuel tank and pipes, and exhaust pipe made up as i got a exhaust.

Hope you all like it hopefully a video tomorrow.

lewis

yeah i think he's quite reasonable lewis, its onyl lister d tanks where its difficult to justify the cost of a new tank, as the engines not worth much more, for everything else, he's top dog!
