Funny where you run into engines.These two are part of the static display around the sides of the Thunder Mountain Mine ride at Disney World. My daughter got the pictures for me when she went to Florida this year.
Anyone have any idea of what they are ??

I've also seen those at Disney Land in Florida, the first is a Bull Dog and the verticle is a Fairbanks T. There are also some steam engines in the park as well.

Lets see if I can make the Bull Dog any bigger. Maybe it will pick up the mixer.

Exclamation Re: Unidentified engines

Twenty years ago, I wrote to Disney about the engines on display, and the steam ferries that they used to transport people into the park. At the time, if you went to the sphere at EPCOT Central, you could post questions of the Disney Archivists, and they would write you a personal note on the results of their research.The Ocala class ferries were taken out of service in 1986. They were classified as a ship, by 5/8", and the Disney corporate heads did not want to spend the time or money to train the pilots to get their captains licenses! Disney did not tell me the fate of the ferries, which had walking beam engines, But I believe they were broken up. (What a shame) Besides the Bull Dog and the T engines, there are 4 other gas engines and 5 steam engines on the Florida site! Disney purchased them at a local farm sale when they were buying up property to build the resort FYI : The underground services are over 1/3 larger than the above ground exhibits!

Judging by Tom's excellent pictures,there isn't much of a mixer. Looks like it has a needle valve oposite the fuel line in a straight piece of pipe. Should be fairly easy to make one like that.

I worked on one years ago, it was a piece of pipe. It was also tapped on the inside, and had a drilled plug screwed up inside the bore. This plug provided a venturi effect so that the engine could draw the fuel. If I remember right, the pipe bore was blocked about 30-40%.

I will try and send pictures of the mixer on my Bull Dog. If this works, I can put up some more on my photo page. Ron
