Thanks for your prompt reply, the engine bore is 6 3/4 inches, flywheel diameter 45 inch.
I am interested in anything related to it.

I just happened to be in Mudgee NSW, recently helping clear out my inlaws house,and a bloke told me of an auction the following weekend at Wellington, that had a Tange for sale. I did try and go on the net for some pics,and it looked complete! Does anyone know who bought it and where it went to? I think this hobby really reflects the economy in general, and from what I have noticed,prices are really in the buyers favour. The problem is the economy is flat,and no one has any money!! Regards Phil.

Jonathan,
I've got the feeling I have seen another Tangye gas engine like the one sold in the sale. I believe they might have been made under licence hence the slight differences in base design and mag positioning. It could be Sweden or possibly Denmark that I saw the other example.
