Hello all
Here is he little brother to the AK Bartram Patrick posted in the last page. The BW Bartram.

Does anyone have any requests for engine video's? If there's something you'd like to see, ask. You never know who may have a video of one, or know where a video of one is.

Cheers Scott

Hi guys this morning I got my newly restored 1927 Briggs and Stratton model FH started for the first time. I thought I would share a video of it running. It is running to fast in this video as I still have to make a shorter governor Rod.
Enjoy the video
Adam

Hello all
One engine I'd like to see running is a Ronaldson Tippett type D.
Anyone have a video of one running?

Cheers Scott

Hi Scott,
My mate has one but he hasn't got it running yet. He also has the Ronaldson tippett copy of the Lister B seen running here at the Mount Gambier show last year https://youtu.be/ymsDiDfyjAQ?t=42s There might be more video of it on my youtube channel somewhere. An interesting thing to note with it is the sub base is off a Lister B and fits perfect.

giving millicent museum 12hp blackstone a run after rebuilding water pump and also bypassing the cooling tower which needs replacing.

it is running a bit rough which I think is due to some old kero in the tank. I think with some fresh kero it will run better again.

Hello Nathan
Did you find that squeaky mouse that was stuck in there somewhere. He sounds just like I do after chasing Pongo for 25m.

Cheers Scott

There is a mouse nest but alas the problem is not so simple. The timing valve leaks slightly so it squeaks when it fires and tends to let a little fireball out at whoever is holding the gas torch. Great arm hair removal. I would like to know a good method to seal up the timing valve all I can think of is to braze up the shaft and turn it so it is parallel and smooth and then ream the bush that locates it so I think I will just live with it.
Regards, Nathan

Hello Nathan
It just gives the engine a character of it's own. You tell us your going to give the Blackstone a run, many may think....which engine was that? Mention Mr Squeaky and people will know exactly which engine your talking about. Some may even run if you hand them the blowtorch.
Cheers Scott

Hello Nathan
Good one matey. I enjoy the model steam gear people have.
How many things are running of that CS (I think it is)? Every corner of the trailer has something else running off a belt. What a beauty.

Here is a request. Has anyone got a video of an early Scott, the precursor to the Sunshine 2 stroke we all love?

Cheers Scott

Hi Scott,
Glad you enjoyed it. The CS has 4 water pumps and a forge blower although one of the water pumps has done a seal so is out of action. It is really a great display that really gets kids having a good look. I have a picture of a Scott that is part of the Scott display at Mannum Just to find it now....
Regards, Nathan

Buzacott Farm Pump with 3" pump.

Just finished putting the pump together, plumbing and the barrel to make a display. A few more things to tidy up. The hand pump primes the system if it is empty.

How 'bout this one. Yesterday, I made and installed the re-designed governor on my home made Non-Rotary Valve Engine.

Not antique but, since I'm an old Friend of Antique Retro Technology, I thought I'd annoy you with it.

Hello all
It is so good to see people contributing their engines.
What a great display Adam. The wooden barrel is such a nice touch.
It seems as the your pumper is an easy starter. You did not even have to drop the camera during the one revolution of the flywheel (it seems) to start it. What a beauty!!
Will we see your display at Pimpama later in the year?
The hand pump is also a nice touch. I have a few different sized pumps and was going to set up a display so people can operate and realise just what a Godsend windmills and engines driving pumps were. They can discover for themselves just how much work is involved in getting 20l of water.

Elden.....what can I say other then.....I'm so jealous of your abilities. As always, I'm flabbergasted.

Cheers and thanks fellas
Scott.

Thanks Scott,
I am not a member of any clubs so I am not sure about insurance for Pimpama. The pumper is not quite ready to rally yet as the arms are original and had a white metal bearing which is buggered. If I can work something out I might look into the insurance. Your Fuller & Johnson looks good. I have been working on a horizontal pump that goes with my F&J but the bore has pitted and I need to repair the bore before I fit the new buckets.
Adam

It certainly is good to see and hear these engines run. Elden, please keep trying to annoy us with your beautifully made engine.
