Nathan, There were a couple of engines at Apsley that interested me. Can you identify the makes of the multi-cylinder engine painted light green on a base with gas-cylinder water and fuel tanks, and the horizontal hot-bulb 2-stroke?
Thanks, Ian

Commer knocker by the looks but I'll happily stand corrected.

I quite liked the Austin Loadstar in the background and the roofing iron roller makes a great display. I've been eyeing off an iron curving machine as a display. One day the chap may decide to sell before it rusts away

Cheers Scott

Hi,

I reckon the horizontal 2 stroke looks a lot like an Avance.

Yes Scott and Wayne you are both correct. The Commer Knocker and Austin were restored by a local club member and are a good display. The Austin has been set up well to make easy loading for stationary engines. The Avance also has a replica cooling tower which is a interesting unit. I will try upload some more pictures of the Avance.
Regards, Nathan

I will try add a photo of the original Avance advertisement not sure how well it will show up and a photo with the cooling tower shown in the left.

I wonder what they're burning in those locomotives to make them throw sparks like that. Maybe coal yard waste?

I just picked up a Lister A, says on the model info it is a A69. It needs a cooling tank so I taped the bottom water pipe and filled it with water so I could run it. I donít know when it was used last but the governor was seized and the magneto was two teeth out and almost took my arm off when it fired well before top dead centre. Still needs work but at least it is running now.

Here's my Bessemer at Clarendon and the Hornsby at the last Campbelltown open day, also a Tangye and a nice Austral that were at Campbelltown on the day.

About time I put another video on this thread. Fired up my Sundial for the first time in about 12 months. First crank and away it went.

Some great videos there.

This is the first start of our 38-4 (JP4) last month. It's not pretty, I just wanted to see if it was going to run or if I'd bought a big anchor, so after some basic repairs, changes and cleaning, we tried to get her going. I'm glad to say, since this start, we've had the radiator restored and have given her some longer runs with the water hooked up. She has picked up compression in the middle cylinders and will start on any of the cylinders now, and also runs a lot cleaner than this clean out of carbon.

Thumbs up Re: About time for an Engine Video

Hi all - here is a short video of a Southern Cross BGC 40HP which was built in 1951. I acquired this last week. It hadn't been run for a very long time and it took a bit of coaxing to bring it back to life. Still a bit of work to do to get it running just right but getting it started was a big step in the right direction! Cheers to all for the New Year.

Great job on the engine. Thanks for the video.

We don't see many of the SC engines here in Lancaster County PA.

Gave my Foden FD6 MKVI truck engine a battery charging run today. The vertical tank is the cooling water for the heat exchanger, as it is a marinised version.
She's a ripper!

This one had not been fired up for a while, but with some fresh fuel and a little TLC it was running happily.
