Petter M 3hp

Here we are, runs nicely but needs some TLC, it looks horrendous and it has some frost damage but im sure it will come good in the end!

As much as you can afford. You can buy cheap and spend loads on getting it right or you can spend the money on a GOOD one and save yourself a shed load of pain. A good 3hp tank cooled one with good bearings, all there unrestored could cost you £300-£400. A bucket of crap could cost £100 but then cost another £500 getting it running.

Deciding on what you would pay is one problem - finding a good one is your next issue.... but gives a great excuse for visiting all the rally’s 'just in case somebody is selling'

speaking for myself I would go for spending more on a good example as I don’t (yet) have all the workshop tools I'd like to restore some of the more challenging examples.... as Villiers says - a bargain may cost you in the long run - but if you're looking for a long term project then fill your boots!

Happy New Year by the way to all!

Hi Matth92 - I forgot to add - are you going to leave that frost damage as is and hope it seals itself or are you going to repair - and if so whats your method going to be? - I ask as i have seen a few frost damaged examples around and wondered what the options are for repairing those cracks - apart from metal stitching them or perhaps a heavy weld...

lovely looking engine by the way and a useful HP size.

best

I have been quoted some silly prices and I was wanting to know where to start as I don't want to be ripped off
I don't mind paying but I am trying to figure what is the going rate
I do have a full workshop for some of the bigger jobs but would like a petter M that is at least running to start with
thank you for your time and I have managed to glean a little more information

Sod Off! for now I will probably just chemical metal it, but one day I will strip it down and get it tig brazed at work, seems to work quite well

hahahaha - to comment would be unfair! - but the tig braizing is a seriously good repair - sadly I have no access to TIG unless I find a local garage but I like the style! - it gives me food for thought - thanks.
