What engines do we all have then?

Post by Matth92 on Sun Sep 15 2013, 19:22

Lets see some photos of what we have got lurking in our sheds....I'll go first! Apologies for some of the photos, taken on my phone!

1931 Lister D shafty, bought it a few weeks back, currently having a mechanical restoration, she is looking much better now, has a very large heavy flywheel, so we think its a 1hp even though its badged as a 1.5, she has cleaned up quite well now with some original paint, watch this space for when she is back together!





1945 Lister F, bought her in june, new trolley, and a bit of work to get it running properly, runs nice and slow like a D now instead of revving away at 1300





c.1935 Moteur Bruneau Superbloc, purchased last winter as a non runner, magneto drive made, mag fitted, new trolley etc





1932 Villiers WAH WX11 fitted to an Alfa Laval milking set, engine bought as a runner, milking plant mechanically restored by me about 6 years ago, when I first started in showbusiness



1946 Bamford EG1, bought as a non runner in 2010, new trolley, sold it last year, and It came back again!



1945 Wolseley WD2, purchased as a non runner last summer, have fitted new rings, new mag and a trolley





1938 Ruston PT, purchased winter 2011 as a non runner, as a tank cooled engine, but have converted it to hopper cooling as I prefer it.


This is how it looked when I bought it, hideous!!


1951 Petter W1, bought in 2010 as a non runner, and put on the trolley, the first time I ever showed it a governor weight flew off and ruined all the gears inside, luckily at the rally there was a rough old A1 in the auction so I bought that and robbed the gears



1942 Fowler 1PA, Swapped it a couple of years ago for a Scott PAB, the magneto is away for repair at the moment so she will probably not get rallied this season now, she picked up a trophy at three okefords last year




1946 Avon (Bradford) drag saw engine, bought as a runner spring 2011, but has had a new trolley and a few minor tweaks


1956 Japy TY2, purchased in 2011, then I sold it on, and it came back again last year, has had new trolley, a problem with the main bearings sorted  but it has taken a lot of tweaking to get her running right, starts and runs well now but was very tempermental to begin with

thought about time i should add a few on my collection ...been shrinking latley but only to clear a bit of room for more projects ..



IHC M 3 hp it has run but need a bit of work to get fuel tank in and fuel fitting with fuel pump and remove crankcase cover to fit another bearing in .



Lister A which has been rallied quite a lot in the last season  ,thinking the fuel tank would look better if was to paint it a mat black or with grate black .



amanco chore boy 1 3/4 hp latest project which just needs finishing and putting on a trolley once its been made .



Fowler 1pa needs finishing with a exhaust and the carb needs sorting .

joseph evans no2 pump ready to rally , needs a clean from the dust from great dorset .



Fairbanks morse headless had this one around a year now runs but needs a trolley making and a repaint along with a fuel tank but that the winter project .

Pete , i think you need to get something done with your bernard !

With the amount of engines you got you could have your own private rally !
