People figure they can get better money for them than selling with the engine. My guess

Too bad, those engines appeared to be well restored. The igniter mount flanges even had neat homemade covers. I think the seller made a mistake.........

A nice auction this year, however. Lots of high quality treasure.

I was impressed on how many flywheel engines were on the field that day, the most I have seen there since I began going to it in 2003. I would like to have bought the Schram Domestic, it seemed like a good project engine. I hope that next years auction is just as good !

Thumbs up Re: Hudson valley new york auction may 9, 2015

Of the 2 compressors, the Shramm/Domestic had the more restorable engine. The rock Island looked like it had been in a salty area - the rocker and latck off assemblies were heavily rusted - almost to the point of being unrecognizable, unless you know the engine design (I own a model 10) The air reservoirs on both were also heavily pitted, they must be replaced. The rock island probably was bult in the early 1920s, the engine S/N should be stamped into the end of the crank. I did not get to see it thru the rust.


The auction went quite well. One item of note - my son was helping the sheriff check people out as they were leaving. Most were quite co-operative, but a few were nasty about being checked out. As far as I know, all was in order. The sheriff noted that if he were watching vehicles leave the auction site, he would have had a field day writing tickets for overloaded vehicles, and not just purchased items! One car had 9 people packed into it - people were sitting in others laps! No worries though, he hated the thought of having to do a weeks work of paperwork, for just one afternoon!

The Auctioneers indeed did a fine job. The furniture building had over 100 items, and we were done in less than 45 minutes. Most items here were sold, only 3 no sales. Over all, over 2000 items this year,, and all gone within 12 hours of frenzied bidding! Hopefully, a good time had by all!

See you at the next one!
