There is a pipe going to the bottom of the mixer on it, with a filter in the tank, definetaly not a tool box/tank.

The Crossley will be petrol/paraffin, start on petrol, get it warm then run on paraffin. You can run on petrol alone, it isn't going to do any harm.

Can you put a photo of the Bamford on here so we can see the "third tank"?

That worked, I'd go with water for water injection but I'm not 100% sure.

You can sign up to the IF website and download a manual from there.

IF is the Internal Fire web site...

http://www.internalfire.com/index.php

If it is water injection that is used when working to help stop "Pre ignition" of the fuel when working hard so you wouldn't need it for just play running on petrol.

Yeah. I will, i,ll have to rebuilt it, its rusted beyond repair, not like the other tanks! So water could be the reason for all the rust.
