Can anyone confirm this engine is a Keighley Engineering gas engine?

My Son and I are currently restoring this little Gas Engine. as you can see It could have been run as Hot tube but never was. Any photos of a Hot tube version would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in anticipation, Graham.

Just consalted the Engine Bible, I Quote:

Keighley Engineering
Morton, Bingley

keighley Engineering were, in early 1906 advertising a small horizontal hot tube ignition engine for use on gas or oil. Ignition was of the lampless type. It is unknown what sizes were offered but, the 1/2hp oil model was advertised for £8 10s.
At that period, Keighley Engineering, like many other small engine manufacturers, were offering their engines as part of a electric lighting outfit coupled to a dynamo capable of lighting eight 16 candle power lamps. When supplied the price of engine and dynamo rose to £15.
The Keighley Engineering engine was also marketed through the Universal Electric Supply Company of 60 brook Street C-on-M Manchester, Under the names of Ready Gas & Oil engines. Sizes of 1/2 - 3hp were offered.

Hope that helps, there is a picture Il try and grab off.

Cheers Steve

Hi Graham, Contact Pat Knight about your engine. He is pretty clued up on small hot tube engines.

Regards Bill.

Keighley gas engine

Thank you both for your responce to my query.

I have a feeling that this engine is related to One Arthur Keighley who also produced the Morton and Little giant engines.

As it would appear from the page of A Z B S E that they were supplied with heatless ignition then the only conclusion I can draw is that it should be spark ignition.

Cheers Graham.

No I dont think its spark ignition, some Allan oil engines employ lampless hot bulb ignition, just think that means it need the lamp to start but will run with out a lamp once warm.
