Default A Crossley Kind of Christmas

I was home for Christmas and had a chance to give the Old Girl a run

Hasn’t run for about 20 years.
It will be getting re- restored soon and I’ll get a better video then

Now that would be what I would call a beautiful piece of machinery!I love the delicate way you tickled the inlet system to keep her running.What did she drive,I would guess she could drive about a 10 stand shearing plant,Norm

It used to drive line shafting in a stove making foundry/workshop.
When it is running it flexes the Leyland truck chaise it’s mounted to

Can’t wait to get it out of the shed

Thanks
