Crossley engine info

Post by Rooneysowner on Sun Jun 15 2014, 06:32

I was wandering round the general auction at our local cattle market the other day and there among a load of old bikes and lawnmowers was green Crossley engine. It was model no 95475 and was rated at 2HP at 700rpm. It had twin flywheels and a lot of compression. Appeared complete apart from a missing magneto, a bit of rust and lots of dirt and cobwebs. Would dearly have loved to bid for it but don't have the space or means to transport such a lump. Can anyone tell me anything about this. Knowing prices at this sale it would have gone for a song or even scrap value.

Yes except it was on two wooden skids not a trolley and was in much cleaner condition.

Crossley 1030 built approx 1926, should have a Hills Bros Magneto. Worth about £300ish with the mag and about £150 without depending on condition.
