Default 12hp Bessemer is Finally at Home

Hello, My 12hp Bessemer has been able to be brought home after a few years. It took help from Bill Klein to initially retrieve the engine from Ohio, along with the #1 Bessemer power and an underpull pumpjack. I waited to get a polebarn up to be able to shelter and work on this engine before I hauled it home from my relatives farm in Butler county, PA. The biggest problem I have so far though is, the cylinder has multiple freeze cracks in the water jacket. So I am actually looking to find a replacement cylinder, and maybe piston also. If anybody might have one, or know of someone that does and is looking to sell, I would greatly appreciate any help. I will look at repairing it as a second option to replacing it. I will keep you all updated with the progress. Thank you again, Sam Carroll
