Default 12 HP Pattin.

Getting this engine soon.
I have a question, what does the lever do that is on the right side of the valve chest? Sure looks like it has a purpose, just cannot figure it out.
thanks.

Greg

there is a fork that goes betweeen the exhaust valve and intake valve so that it put more pressure against the intake valve when the exhaust is pushed open, that lever your looking at holds the fork and is where it pivots between the valves.

When did you get a 12HP Pattin, I don't remember selling you one and here I thought you bought all your oilfield engines from me. lol just kidding, nice engine

Hey thanks Tom!
Geez, with the price of gas I may never make it back to Ohio.
Would you happen to have a fork or be able to get me a picture of one?

thanks.

Greg

I know I have one on one of my 12HP Pattins and I'll have to check the parts shelves to see if I have an extra. It may take a couple weeks before I can get to the farm to check for you.

If i've done this right there should be a picture of the fork in question. This engine came from Tom.
