Hi Guys, another easy way to tell the HP of the "M" is the centres of the fuel tank mounting bolt holes underneath.
They are 1+1/2hp engine:- 14+1/2 inches
3hp engine 16+1/2 inches
6hp engine 23 inches.
I do not have the 10hp, as that is the only one I have never had an order for.
Talking of the 3hp engine, I have just completed another fuel tank for someone who rang me with the order around Christmas time. Yes, I have lost my note and have no idea who it is for ???? getting old is a bummer. Did you order this tank??
Cheers, John

Hi Guys I just had a look at that auction site, mentioned in the last quote and all I can say is "WOW" now I wish I was a bit closer to it as it would be an eye opener to see. Plenty of old engines, tractors etc and tools. Also heaps for the scrappy. Cheers, John

Hi Guys
Does anyone know what size the thread is on the oiler tube where it screws into the cylinder ?
The other end where the oiler screws on is 3/8" bsp.
Cheers Dobbo56

here we go, here we go, here we go,
......

now is when you start the never ending accumulation of 'just one more' of those seemingly
ordinary tools you never thought you would ever need.
and possibly don't even yet know exist!
and might never need again,

in this case, a thread gauge set.
oops, make that 'sets'...

Hi Team,
being a American engine it should/will have NPT (National Pipe) threads for the taper pipe fittings.
Chart below may help.
I guess looking at Shopdog Sam's video of fitting a cylinder liner to an M engine that the lubricator pipe is 1/8" NPT--if not, 1/4" NPT

I spent some $$$'s years ago and bought a set of Thread Files and I am sure the scraping internal thread ends would fit in the 1/8" NPT thread hole--- approx. 3/8 " diameter to allow cleaning up the internal threads.

Went to the Goomalling sale yesterday. Was a good day and well attended. Over 400 lots that were sold over about 6 hours. Small stuff sold very well, and larger stuff sold cheaper. The Crossley sold for $18,000. The Gray on the transport sold for $1400. The New Way CH sold for $600. I was happy as I picked up the Denbigh drill for $250 and the IHC “M” series and big lister fuel tank for $700. Also picked up a complete oxy kit with bottles and about 50 spare cutting tips for $60.

Iíve had good success repairing cast iron casings with an epoxy putty that is sold at Repco stores, it comes in a stick that you cut off a piece which has 2 layers that you knead together until the colour is consistent. Press into gap or crack and it sets in 4 minutes. Itís brand name is Dynasteel Epoxy Putty and JB Weld also market a similar product.
Getting back to your Oiler thread, on my M itís 1/4Ē NPT, the Brass tube can be purchased from Hit N Miss Enterprises in the US. Good Luck Les

Selleys also make an epoxy putty named "U-need-It" and you can find it at Bunnings. I have used it in a few jobs and it can be drilled and tapped once hardened correctly in a day or so.

Hi all have stumbled on a virtual gold mine of engines through an old mate have a look at the photos of what is is sitting around, and the owner has had a stroke and will not be able to do anything with them. Hope to get a couple of M's out of it.
Cheers Dobbo56
