Default Hercules - first engine - South Australia

Hi Everyone

I think I made a big mistake today. I just paid $200 for a lump of steel & rust. My first engine.....

I think it's a Hercules, but will post a pic of the old lady on the appropriate thread shortly.

It's good to be here, looks like a great bunch of folk. Hope some of you might be able to assist as I get on with the rebuild. Absolutely zero experience with stationary engines, so it's going to be a real challenging project.
