Yeah that's a good Idea Scott, better off fixing than buying new because the quality just seems to keep dropping.

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

Thanks Scotty,
Much better, took me a while to figure out how to put the link on. What's the process of how to add a video like you did?
Regards
Jeff

When your at your video there's a share button you can click on and get the address for your video. Yours is https://youtu.be/omvPi1L7EIo
When your here, in the little menu up to top of a reply thingo you'll find the coloured circle with a play icon in it. A page is seen behind it. It's to the right of the cross hash.
You click on it and [ YOUTUBE][ /YOUTUBE] appears.
Now with your video link you paste it in of the youtube bracket thingos like this [ YOUTUBE]https://youtu.be/omvPi1L7EIo[ /YOUTUBE] and here is the tricky part....you get rid of everything before the omvPi1L7EIo which will give you this [ YOUTUBE]omvPi1L7EIo[ /YOUTUBE]
Now click preview and see if the link works. If there's a you tube TV screen with snow all over it, try again. If you see your nice little engine on the TV screen then woohoo. Press submit.

It looks pretty dry where you are. No grass at all.

Hello all
I've been very slack on the fixing up front. Life just isn't giving me too much time at the moment.
I've seen some bare iron engines at rallies and I really liked the look so I thought....why not. I also thought it would be a good way to highlight the repairs that those old engines had done to them over the years.

I've had this old (or is this one vintage?) girl sitting in the do up line for a while now. It's actually a pump which was sitting on it's side in a chook pen in the middle of Whoop Whoop. The owners had found it on the creek bank and dragged it up to the chook pen when they first brought the place.
It's taken a bit over a year to do up and I've been very lucky with it. All I needed to find was a spark plug wire, an oiler, a muffler and a few split pins (I think that was all). I also had to make all the gaskets up and make the packing compression collar for the fuel pump. I had to sacrifice it to save the fuel pump.
It was seized and seized really well. It took 2 weeks to get the crank handle off. Lucky I'm time poor at the moment. It gave plenty of time for things to soak.
Amasingly the magneto coils tested OK. Woohoo.
Oh, fuel taank. It had a leak. The drain pipe had partially broken off. The drain pipe had been pushed in towards the tank when it was chucked on it's side. That probably saved the fuel tank itself.

Anyways....before and after. She's running at about 380-390 rpms in the video. To begin with she had a couple of troubles, like a water leak into the sump and the earthing tab fell off in the magneto, but they've been sorted. She now starts by pulling the flywheels so I think she's running OK.
Cheers Scott

This is my Gray marine engine, it had to have new pistons and rings and a starter motor, luckily my friend had one that fitted straight on .

Not strictly stationary engine related but thought this may be of interest.

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.
