Re: New Zealand made Engines

Hi There, this is a very nice Anderson engine, I have one just like it that I got about a week ago and another one too, I have just gotton one of them dismanteld completly, and the other one will nearly be ready to start, because everything is free in it which is good the one that is like yours is a 1919 or 1920, and the other one is a 1926 or 1927. Does your's go now??? And have you cleaned it up yet??

Re: New Zealand made Engines

Hi Evan. My engine is 1922. I have not had time to do much with it yet (it is still sitting where it was unloaded) although it has been sprayed all over with WD40. I hope to have some time to get to it in the next month. I don't think it will take much to get it running.

Re: New Zealand made Engines

Hey Evan do the motors at the club count? According to the last inventory I conducted there are:


24 Andersons
1 Boothmac
3 Twiggs, one being a 3 cylinder marine
1 Farmer
1 Masport
1 Treloar.One of a total of 4 remaining in New Zealand that still run. 3 are known to be in the Whangarei area, 1 at the Whangarei Stationary Engine Club, 1 at the Jack Morgan Museum Hukerenui, Whangarei and one in the ownership of a friend of mine, who also lives in Whangarei.
1 RJL
2 Greenslades
2 Zealandia Marines

Don't worry I will try to get pics of them for all to see sometime next week.

Last but not least my only NZ made engine. 1928 Anderson 3hp @400rpm, just about restored:D so I want to try and get her to some shows this year. See you on saturday

Only four Treloars running? I would have thought there would have been more. I know there are not many around. Do they have the original carby's I know a lot were changed. My Treloar is free and does have the original carb, I intend to restore it soon. I haven't got a photo but I will get one and post it on here

Re: New Zealand made Engines

Very good looking engine, it will be going soon, then the count will go up of the running engines, I may be getting a Cooper Stover Horizontal engine for a good price.
Cheers
Evan.

A museum further up the road from our club has about 3 zealandias, several andersons, a treloar and many villiers and rare horizontals. Forgot to take my camera when I went there for a visit last weekend so I didn't get any pictures although there were many unrestored engines i would have liked.

Re: New Zealand made Engines

I have got a 1911 or 1912 Mason and Porter Style:1 Serial Number:24, Made by City Engineering, Auckland. It has got spoked flywheels, not like any other Mason and Porter or Masport engines. On the 20 October 1916 the Mason and Porter Company Limited started. This company was prior to Masport Engineering. Geoff McCarten.
