Thanks for comment, the guy who I got the engines off tied the valves down like that because it was holding a Lister 60L 5HP piston and a carb mount for one of the Wolseley's.
Thanks

Got the piston out of the Wolseley with holes in the flywheels, at the same time I found it has got new Bearings and rings, someone worked on it some time ago, it is in good con on the inside of the engine, just need new valves, a carb, and a mag.

PS, the Flywheels on both the big Wolseley's are 24-5" in DI, that would mean the engines are 5HP?

Hi Mike d, yes all the Wolseleys will be restored. I have very good news the Wolseley Style 3 is all up and running now, it runs very very well, I got the Stationary engine club to restore it for me. They did not paint it, they put new valves in it, made a mag bracket, put a good mag on it, converted it to chain drive mag, made an inlet manifold, put the carb on it, and it fired into life, for the first time in over 50 years. A video will be up as soon as I get it back, I just have to do some work on it as well.
Thanks
Evan
