Default Clark & Norton half breed with a very interesting bed.

I found this Clark & Norton conversion close to 20 years ago. I've been trying to buy it ever since then. I think the bed was made by Oil Well Supply. Maybe an Innis large mill style engine? I love that bored crosshead and dual flywheel look. The main bearing caps on this engine are massive compared to most half breeds. I know it's not a Bessemer bed, that's pretty obvious. I'm in contact with the owner quite frequently. It will now be a nightmare to get out of where it sits. Twenty yrs ago it would have been a lot easier!

Default Re: Clark & Norton half breed with a very interesting bed.

The bed plate is definitely different for a half breed.. I have only seen 1 other halfbreed with the cross slide like that .. we have a Clark and norton on a struthers bed plate ...
