Hello All! I hadn't run my Oil City Boiler Works Oil Field Engine in about 18 years. Brought it over from Eau Claire and got the old girl fired up at the Edgar Steam and Gas Show last weekend. Check out my video and see what you think!?!? :eek: Thanks for looking!! Jeff https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gX-QrxQceNE

Looks good! Is it not bolted down to the skid though?

Yes, it's bolted down, but the bottom timbers are getting rotten. Plan on restoring it and replacing the timbers.

Jeff are you pumping the water? Or is it natural convection with the barrel a little higher than the cylinder. thank you Russ

Natural Convection. Take about a half hour, at this speed, before it starts the water running.
