Default Restoring a Half Breed

I've had this engine since 1980. Soon it's going to make a little smoke. All of the large castings have been bead blasted and primed. I have spent this past summer gathering up the little bits and pieces needed to flesh it out. The cylinder is a Clark & Norton made here in Wellsville, NY., serial #24 circa 1904 or '05. The bed is a Farrar & Trefts, Buffalo, NY. A New York engine. Going to order some white oak for the skids this week.

This one's getting the red carpet treatment Bill. Here's a shot of the flywheel and crankshaft in the bead blast room. After that is done we are going to put the porta power under the clutch to see if we can get it to move. I have another identical flywheel to install on that side. Then I'll go through the clutch and reinstall it.

Cylinder is mounted to the bed. Found these interesting initials stamped into the end of the crankshaft. I have no idea what W.S.S. stands for. Crank & flywheel are blasted, primed and ready for paint

More progress. Piston before and after. Ring set shown with brass strips I'll use to put them back in the grooves

Piston is in the bore and ready to be screwed into the crosshead. Had to stop there. Darn arthritis was really screaming at me by this time. Maybe some more work tomorrow.
