Root & VanDervoort 12hp

Post by Triumphline on Fri Jul 31 2009, 00:52

This has been my most difficult restoration (so far). It is a 1914 12hp Root & VanDervoort 'Triumph Line' engine.

The 'Triumph Line' R&Vs are interesting as the basic design was the same for all the sizes; they just scaled them up!
This is one of my AL 1hp engines sitting in front of the GL 12hp:


This is my BL 2hp engine:
