Hi guys as it's a nice public holday here in South Australia I thought I would run a couple of engine. I chose the two Briggs and Strattons to run. My 1937 WM & my 1927 FH.

Here's the last of the videos (for now) of The Non-Rotary Valve Engine.

I've got most of the bugs worked out, have a muffler on it and a speed changer. With the muffler, the irritation factor is much milder.
BOY! This is fun!

Hello Elden
If it's not a rude question, how many hours have you spent on that engine? I wished I had the brains and skills to make the trolley let alone the engine.

I have a chair I use all the time when I'm in the shed. It's just like yours. Sadly, the brilliance factor isn't built into that type of chair and transferred to the sittee (is that a word?).

Cheers Scott

Scott:

Since I am out of the "paid work" market, I don't keep track of the time spent on projects.

I can take a stab at a guess and I figure I've got somewhere between 500 and 1000 hours on it.

I could never make a living doing this but it is a way of passing the time and keeping me out of smoke filled bars and them fast wimmenfolk. On top of that, it keeps me from having an unfortunate encounter with my wife's "battle skillet".

........................... PLANG!....... Ouch!.......Yes, dear, I understand perfectly now.

The chair, from Harbor Freight, is handy because it rolls around and has a junk repository at it's base. I do still have the plywood topped drywall bucket as a backup.

Sittee???? Maybe also "sittist".

Just a little bump to this thread. Not a great video but may be of some interest. Bit hard to think about filming while tinkering with engines that have not run for 20+ years.

Here is my latest, a Foden FD6 MKVI 6-cylinder 2-stroke diesel engine. See https://youtu.be/RcZQMocKiFI
It is set up to be transportable to displays. This video does not convey its spectacular sound, as I was unable to blip the throttle whist walking around with the camera, and besides, the camera is unable to cope with recording the change in sound level.
It will drown out anything in the vicinity!

Very nice engine! I think you meant to say 2017 in the caption.

Not much engine footage in this video but you can hear the fairmont 2 stroke putting away as it powers along the rails. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HxZioXYo1E0

Hi guy s this morning I completed the restoration of my 1924 Associated Hired Hand 2.5HP. The video posted is about the fourth run after I ironed out all the teething problems.
Hope you enjoy
Adam

Hello all
I've very busy of late but I was lucky enough to have a day off to take a few engines and gear to the local museum open day.
All was going really good until I spotted an old animal feed mixer made out of cast iron sitting in the corner. My silly mind put two an two together and came up with...the Barlow will go on that. So out to the car to get a belt out, find something to keep the tension on the belt and Bob's your aunty.
It turned out to be pretty good display that you don't see everyday.
We now have to make some side shields so the 'mix' doesn't come over the top of the mixer. I'm sure it would have had a lid on it originally but it is long gooone. It would be easy to build another lid, but no-body would be able to see what's happening when stuff was in it. We'll try it with just high sides but who knows what'll happen when it's got enough feed in there to make the second set of augers work.
Sorry about the lack of sound early in the clip. The little camera jut doesn't like movement and I did not even think about taking the tripod

Cheers Scott

What a neat display Scotty. I wonder if you don't need to fill it to make it work the grain back and forth or if it does need "hungry boards". If you happen to come across some at a price you just cant refuse maybe some perplex can be shaped to keep everything inside.
The chooks will go mad if they ever see that mixing grain..

Makes for a good display, Always good to see engines driving something. Must say I don't think I have ever seen something like it before.

I have been re-organising the garage but was distracted by the need to run an engine. The 1hp R&V had not been started for a while and seemed reluctant to run. A dirty ignitor and stuck check valve were the cause which were easy fixes.

First run of my Forbes genset in 40+ years. Would be interested to see any other complete Forbes gensets out there. I know of 3 other N model ronnie bassed gensets and a larger one based off of a CH ronnie diesel.

Hello Nathan
The good old 4x2 dyno test eh. Can't beat it to load an engine up.

Cheers Scott
