Default Steam Model – No name - found

at the “FLEA” market. As soon as I got there, I was told Ryan has one (already sold and gone). Then awhile later, a friend on the way out saw me and said there is a Steam Model over here and he showed me where. I asked, and it was the one Ryan had, I could have it (resale) for X $’s . It looked like it had a tough life, all taped up, but complete . We negotiated a bit on price, and I came away with the no name, electrically heated steam engine. After I got home, I oiled it up good with PB Blaster, got it loose, added some air, and away it went - sounds good. removed the black sticky tape all over it, got it partially apart, freed up the whistle, and ran out of time. Any body know what make this Steam Engine with its tin base, nickel plated copper boiler, feed water-pressure relief through the stack, missing the threaded steam control valve could be . What a way to end the day, by just having fun , even in NJ .

Paul,
You have an Empire model 43 steam engine made by The Metal Ware Corp in Two Rivers, WI. Look close on the underside of the base, the name may be stamped there. These are fairly common, but still a nice find. You are missing the steam throttle and the handle to actuate the whistle.

Mike: I cleaned the dirt off the heater cover and found the stamped information on my Empire 43. Now to find, or make the missing parts if I can find a drawing for them. Thanks-Paul

I wish I could give you the info to make the missing parts, but I don’t have an Empire 43. You may be able to find a parts engine on eBay for a reasonable price, if you’re lucky.

You are missing the steam throttle control screw. On my Empire 43 it's a brass 8-32 screw about 1-1/8 inch long. Tt's just slightly beveled on the steam end, and has a bakelite knob with locknut on the other. I made one for another Empire I have, and the knob is available at any hardware store.
