Karl' new toys!

Post by EarlBathurst on Sun Mar 09 2014, 20:29

More toys followed me home today:yahoo:
The first is a Bamford TulipTop 2-1/2hp@400rpm number 1360.
it's in good mechanical condition and has a rebuilt coil and re energized magnet,
apparently it hasn't been started since 1985 but when i got home i just couldn't resist putting some fuel in and having a go! after a couple of swings away it went, and continued to run for an hour ! -Result! Its not in original condition paint wise but looks ok for now!
Does anyone know where i can get it dated and any sales records?
Also lurking at the back of the same shed was this nice light switch board, it's a Lister one , and i'd like to hook it up to My CS9/1 once i can work out how to !(Does anyone know howto wire one up?)
Here's some pics of the days haul! http://youtu.be/2lMAJHMwJKA








Cheers,Karl.

very nice Karl. You have the early Bamford there. With the slanted main bearing caps.

They are a lovely engine and one your enjoy. I have one a 1925 model with Webster. So I'd date
Yours to around 1923 maybe a bit earlier.

They will run very slow. But doesn't do the igniters a lot of good they will get black and soot up.
Mine runs on a pint of petrol a day at 300rpm


Lovely engine made me want to go pull mine out from under its sheet now.
Lewis
