Thumbs up Re: crossley

Hi Roger,
we have a Crossley type SE220 #89120 that was built in october 1924.
So your engine would be late 1924 , early 1925.
Contact Geoff Challinor at the Anson museun in the U.K.
They have the factory records and can tell you exactly how old your engine is.

Hi there Roger: I sold my Crossley PH1065 about 18 months ago, it was fully restored but was possibly going to cost me a lot of money in the near future due to the cylinder liner getting a bit thin in places. I bought the engine from a friend about 4 years ago, also with the engine were two other items of interest, one been its origianal workshop manual & the other was its origianal factory test shop certificate. This gave not just its serial number - 94744, but also its exact date of manufacture - 24th April 1926. It also showed that the engine had been returned to the factory on the 23rd June 1936 to have some new parts fitted. The engine spent its working life in a water works about 12 miles up the road from me until around 1973 when it was saved for preservation. About 3 miles up the road from there & even nearer to me is a smaller PH1060 which is unrestored & still in its original engine shed It will probably never run again due to the fact that the farmer who owns it is to mean to sell it I've never added a photo to a reply before so i dont quite know how, but when i find out i'll let you have a look at both the engine & the paper.
