Hi All, a friend has a Globe engine that he feels is a pre 1900 era build, He is in middle of restoring it but has no fuel tank. Can anyone please advise the shape and measurements so I can make him a new tank. Cheers, John.
Hi All. finally have 6 pics of this Globe Engine. Any help in description of FUEL TANK please, and is it a "Globe or a White" and approximate date of manufacture ?? Cheers , John . ps Owner still not sure of it's date.
The fuel tank would mount between the wooden skids under the engine. I would make it about 12 inches long and probably no more than 4 inches deep. Originally the tank would have been bigger than that but since these engines are mostly for show and play, a larger tank would just be something that would have to be drained to clean it out for winter, etc. A tank as wide as the distance between the skids, 12 inches long and 4 inches high will hold enough fuel to run that engine several hours (probably all day) at a show or engine get together.
