Hello all
Here's another couple of the more unusual engines from our little collection and one of the hardest engines for me to find.
The first one might needed by the Museum Nathan. It's hard to see but she's a compressor engine. It's a Crossley PHX 1060. For some reason (that I cannot remember) Christina was near impossible (compared to her normal self) to start.
The second is A 1-1/2hp Reading that may be matched to a Reading chaff cutter at our club's Heritage Week-end next Australia Day.
The last video is of one of the hardest engines for me to find. I know, it's hard to imagine, but they're simply not common around here. The first picture is why he was taken out of service. He just wouldn't start. I wonder why?

Cheers Scott

Hello all
Video's have been a bit slim lately so here's a few of our engines running for the Dodge Bros club that had their National rally in Warwick this week.
The first is the Crossley PH 1060, then we have the Fuller & Johnson farm pumper with Goulds New Alert pump (complete with disintegrating packing in the packing gland....bugger. New stuff ordered) and then the Monitor with Triton pump.
Cheers Scott

Hi,
Thought this thread could do with a bump.

Here is a video of another engine owned by the Millicent Museum. It is a R Hornsby very similar to one I have already had running and posted on Smokstak
Regards,Nathan

Happy New year to everyone. Just had to give an engine a run on New years eve. ( I think any excuse is a good excuse to give an engine a run) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wbQh8sdF6V0

The sparklers only burned out. Yes well... I used plenty of 100mph tape or should I say gaffer or is duct or duck. I don't know it seems on this forum that no one wants to use the common name for anything.
Joking aside the trial run ended up with the sparkler being lunched so for the filmed run I ensured they were well fastened don't want to get in trouble with the NHMA for burning projectiles being lunched hahaha.
Glad you enjoyed it Scott.

Also some video of the engine running with a bit more light so you can see it better.

Hello Nathan.
Wow .
You must be so proud in the way that engine starts. I have never seen anything that before. Now I have to try and do it on the old Lister. There's another fortnight lost trying new stuff. Bugger.

How about plumber's rope for a 'new' name for duct tape?

Cheers then
Scott

Forgive me this is no engine vid but I thought could be of someone interest. I am not sure of the Age of this however it must be fairly old and has not been played for a number of years. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lwbCDjvzt64
Enjoy
Regards, Nathan

Been doing some more work on Millicent Museums Blackstone, repaired the timing valve so it now operates correctly and the cooling tower is currently off undergoing repair.
