Default About Time for an Engine Video

Hello all
I've noticed of late there has not been much in the way of pictures or video's of our pride and joys. It's been blah, blah, blah.
So here is one of our latest little projects. We wanted a little engine setup so we could travel to a few rallies. Van on the back, engine in the back sort of thing. The whole setup easily goes in the back of the old Pajero with room left over for another little engine and something for it to drive.
Anyways, here's our little Barlow and Triton. I've just had it at a rally where it ran for 2 days with virtually no problems. A valve got a bit sticky and some oil blew out the breather into the magneto points were the only problems. A squirt of oil here and a squirt of degreaser there and problems sorted. The oil blowing out the breather was entirely my fault. I didn't leave the oil level plug out long enough when I topped the oil up at the beginning of the second day. Stupid me.

Please feel free to add pictures or video's of your...well, any old stuff. No need to be an old engine per-say. Let everyone know why your in this hobby.
Cheers Scott

Hello Robert
Thanks for that. That's an engine I have never seen before. It has a very even beat hasn't it.

Cheers Scott

I'm going to have to get an unusual engine (for Australia) out and do a video this week-end. I have just the one in mind.

Hello all
The whole idea of this thread is to show YOUR videos of YOUR stuff. Please respect that.
There is a separate forum if you want to post other peoples videos of stuff that is not yours. Please use it if the video you want to post does not follow the very simple guidelines.

At least we can all see who just does not give two hoots for respect or the purpose of this thread. Well done Typak. (sarcastic prat I am).
If I was more direct I'd tell you to go to buggery. But I have some PC.

It has been a while since I posted anything on this thread so I thought I would share a trio of videos I took at the Millicent Museum when we gave three engines a bit of a run as they had been sitting for a few months.
Hope you enjoy

Hello Nathan.
The whole idea of the thread is to show your interesting old stuff. Pretty well nothing is off limits as long as it's yours or you took the video of local stuff. Just finding stuff on youtube and posting isn't appreciated.

That video was great and other interests, like steam, should be encouraged to be shown.
Did the kids enjoy the 'steam engine' ride?

Cheers Scott

Hi Scott, Most kids certainly do enjoy the rides sometimes it can be hard to get them off. A lot of 'Big kids' also like to have a ride. It is impressive what they can pull. Have had three rather large bikers go for a ride and whilst it took a bit to get moving initially the little engine pulled them all along just fine.

Giving my Cameron Sutherland mixer a test run with my clapped out old Mcdonald diesel. Trying to work out what the ideal drum speed is.

Still a bit fast I reckon Nathan.
About the only way to really see is chuck in some sand and gravel and mix a batch. Slower is better then quicker.
Are there spiraling flutes/fins in the bowl or are they bits of flat welded as the mixers? My guess would be flutes so you can get the mud out. How do you get the mud out?

Cheers Scott

Yes I was thinking might be slightly fast. Might have to put a jack shaft in to help gear it down some more. There are fins and cups, the fins help guide into the cups and the cups lift it up to the top and it falls back to the bottom. None of the fins or cups are tight up against the barrel there is a slight gap to allow for cleaning. There is a bung in the barrel which you can take out and that will drain what ever is left over and allow for cleaning.
Once I put it to work I will do a video to demonstrate it all better.

Not exactly an engine video but might still be of interest.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TrLt5vED7sw
It is a video of recently acquired Kelly and Lewis Centrifugal pump size 1 type H
I would be interested to know what the max rated speed is for it.
Cheers, Nathan
