Profit and selling stationary engines are seldom in the same sentence. Well Done.

I do like them twin flywheeled Bamford's if my back was good I'd have one myself, better engine then the Lister D's, Pt WD in my opinion. In fact i't's all I need to make the set Laughing Laughing

Stu.

annmarie says she prefers the wd2 compared to the bamford .... i dont it just the note of it and the twin small flywheels . i know they are a heavy beast though , i thought i could get away without having a crane for a while but i think im going to have to invest in one ... or build 2 large a frames and use my winch inbetween the engine and crossbar ....

Mike I said I like the Bamford not I wanted to buy one, if a young un like that say's it's heavy what the hell can I do with it. Anything to help with lifting engines is always worth the work and investment to save you doing a mischief Laughing Laughing

Kev your right an understanding wife is always helpful only problem you sometimes have to get through a few till you find the right one lol! lol! lol!

Is that the kit form one on ebay ?

i doubt it will take up less room than the wd2 as the wd2 has gone but the trolley and pump has stayed , the lister d will be going on that , and will be having another trolley made up for the eg1 , but then i have got a spare wheel barrow trolley to hand .... bit too small for the A to sit on lol! lol!
