Hey Brock a very nice engine. Always amazes me on how large the early engines are for the HP rating. Thanks for the post.

One and a half HP? a lot of iron for for such a low horse power.
It is great to see engines in their original homes.

Here is another in its original home. It is at the Bushy Park Homestead Wanganui still with the generator that powered the house. they run it about four times a year.
it is 6hp serial No 8715 6 Hp

Hi Everyone, don't forget the Canberra Rally on 20/21st. March at the Tuggeranong Homestead. Yesterday we finished connecting water and exhaust systems to the 1904 Hornsby Akroyd in its original pump shed. It was used to pump water to the homestead from 1905. It starts and runs smoothly and we have now had it running for over 3 hours. We plan on running it during the Rally weekend. Hope to see you there.
Cheers.
Tim Baker.
