Hi Joe

Looks interesting, would it fit on the project you're getting from the USA this year? It sounds to about the right size.

Interesting pictures. Thanks for posting them.

some encouraging news on the new find,after cutting the bolts off the hot bulb as i knocked it loose there was a hiss of air either vacuum or air pressure in side,which i have never seen before , there was no moisture at all inside just black soot which is more than i can say for the other end of the piston but she is now soaking in kersene.
regards joe

Hi Joe, this hissing sound may not have been pressure or vaccuum. It was probably a sigh of relief after being saved from another flood.
