Default Heinrici 40 MM Engine

Hello
Picked this one up awhile ago. Runs good but needs a burner. What is the history of these?

Thanks
David

Nice find. What does it say on the nameplate?--it's out of focus in your photo. That small plate is probably the name of the retailer. These small water-cooled engines like yours (referred to as "HL" models) were made in Germany around 1910-14 and are probably the most common small hot air engines in Europe. They usually had a small water pump or pulleys on one of the the flywheels.

Hi David,
volumes "comp-05A" and "comp-05B" provide information about Heinrici hot-air engines on 546 pages (in English and German). Just check my homepage www.stirlingmaier.com button "comp".
And enjoy your little "HL" model.
Gerd

Hi David,
maybe I pressed the "send" button too fast, sorry.
There are some corrections to be made to the "Nice find..." reply:
HL-type engines were made from 1906 onwards to replace the predecessor pattern.
They were not the most common Heinrici hot-air engine which is the air-cooled two-cylinder "HA" model.
HL types usually have but pulleys. Pumping variants (termed "HLP" by Louis Heinrici) are extremely rare. In decades of collecting I found just one in complete condition.
Gerd

Gerd. Sorry you misunderstood my post. What I meant was that Heinrici engines (HL, HA or whatever) appear to be the most common hot air engines in Europe that are not toys. In this country we see more water-cooled HLs than any other type of Heinrici. There were several of them at the regional hot air show in Greenville, Ohio this summer.
