Would love to since we have friends around Melbourne and Sydney, but I can't face the 24 hours in a tin can. Hong Kong was only just bearable.
Keep us posted with progress and good luck.

its a a1 with the VO/vapourizing oil manifold fitted ,it crosses the air into the engine with the heat from the exhurst out, to vapourize the heavy oil into a more combustable vapour for the spark plug to ignite,so you would start on petrol in the same compartment in the tank or bolted to the side of the tank and then when warmed up switch the 3 way tap over to the larger compartment to run on either a petrol/paraffin mixture or
kerosene, keresene,heating oil,  lamp oil ect back in the day
but it will run all day on just petrol in the larger compartment in  twin  fuel tank/or tanks

Thanks Kev

The motor runs very nicely - it looks very rusty and uncared for , it needs a good clean up and a paint job . The mixer looks to be from the 1950's , a very strong machine with a nice large capacity .

Moving

Post by mixerpetter on Fri Dec 19 2014, 08:12

The Petter mixer has been moved into position. The plan is to concrete the floor of the little shed extension. My CS 6/1 Indian Lister is going into its new home soon, that little shed cheers The Land Rover is the same vintage as the mixer cyclops

Manual

Post by mixerpetter on Sat Dec 27 2014, 07:13

Hi

I am requesting a link to a download , or a copy of the manual for my Petter A1VO engine. The serial number ( 554386 )suggests the engine was made between 1948-51 a series 2 engine .

This manual may be the correct one ?

Thanks  Mike

PS I also wanted to find out which magneto I have ?
