a winter project....

Post by mike d on Tue Nov 08 2011, 10:14

i bought this engine from a feller back on the 7 September this year and i forgot all about it.i had it collected on Wednesday 2nd November (PM) and it arrived here one the 3rd of November (AM).that's a 48pallet service from national pallets (ive posted the link in the transport section for you all to see).finally got round to taking it off the pallet on Sunday (6th Nov) thanks to my son for that.
i did take 4 photos but 3 has disappeared,its a 3hp international m P/P all complete and came with a new hard wood trolley as well,it needs the mag putting on it and timing up some fuel and away it goes...
theres been one on eBay in wiltshire for £450 and hasn't had one bid,and it has some bits missing,so that makes mine a very cheap engine.

Nice looking engine Mike what are your plans? Strip and repaint or just a wipe with an oily rag.

Mike it would be around the £1500 in first class order. If I got that it would be the last engine I ever bought apart from the odd small BSA or Jap to mess about with. So I'm not in any great hurry as yet to get it.

ive been contacted by a feller already that wants to know when mine will be for sale..
how he got my number i don't know,unless they've spoken to one of my mates...
like in said to him it all depends on the other one and if my mate decides to sell it..
hes like me he waited for one to come up for ages,but like i said hes got no choice really..
due to health reasons etc...and he found the one hes got rite on his door step..
well not literally,but it was from a farmer who used it on his farm and he lives 5 mins from him...
its like i said before there all out there somewhere..
regards,mike...

You have 3 control knobs
1 is for Petrol when first starting
2 is for parafin/TVO/Kerosen
3 is for water you only use this when engine is under full load driving somthing ,when running on parafin/TVO/Kerosen the water will stop the big ends knocking . You only let a little at a time until the knocking stops. Too much will stop the engine, the water as to be boiling before you use it

Is it not to stop pinking? used quite alot on aircraft engines, and engines with high compression ratios.
