Yes it was a hot bulb engine but thats long gone, It was converted back before the 50's to run on petrol. I don't see any need to change it back as it runns great like it is. You can see the cast pipe and cap in the place of the hot bulb with the spark plug in the end. It had a hot box thing on it but I found the petrol was pooling in the bottom of it so I took in off, It was put on with the conversion it had.

Thanks Lanzb for your info,my engine at the back just under bearings has four bolts on each side of the crank case with a thread in each plate.No oilers on the top of the bearing cap just little plugs and one oiler for the big end.is your engine the same?

Yes I did email you about yours a while ago. Mine doesnt have those plates at the back but it's also a smaller engine and a Pitt not Keisley

Mine should also have a wiper type thing to oil the big end but I don't have that neither, I just have a small oil cup on the big end bearing like a blackstone.

Hi Wayne,

About 2 years ago a collector in Murray Bridge in SA was selling some engines, one of which was a hot-bulb Pitt. I have sent you a private message with his details.

Regards,
Wayne
