HI BW

Nope. One of the heirs (50% share) want to sell all scrap in a pack, so Im waiting to see if I can get the engine for me.

Hope scrap man give him a low offer.

Fingers cross.

Hi Gentles

The second number seems to indicate MG - marine generator.

So it could had been taken out of his alternator.

My 2 cents.

Hi Adev

Yes it is. But it only turned the olives crusher, and one press. Other press was hand fasten.

Hi Gentles

New episode...

From top side bushes doesnt let to scrutinize what was down, and from near room door neither.

After almost an hour cutting bushes, finally the iron show itself.

What a nice piece - seized of course.

It's been seated for 65+ years. Its a SD4

The easy part is done, now the most difficult part will be negotiating with 15 heirs.

Let see if it comes with me.

Hi Gentles

Recently I've been told that an old olive oil plant could still have his stationary engine, but all roof of plant fall down and bush fire pass thru there, so no big hope on the site.

Nevertheless, a look on the site and wild bushes doesnt allowed to have a clue, and sun was outshine, as you can see on the pic.

But the shadow show something inside, and a slight curved line ressembled me to something familiar.

Grabbed a long scaffold lock tube to tap, and could identify a rectangular shape upside, and a narrower shape to downside (something like a chess tower), tapped harder down and definitely could hear a sound like does a fly rim.

That was all for that day.

Let see next episode.

Hi Zvh

Sorry for the lang and slang! Blindly, means you get the money without knowing what task was comming with it (or not!).

Indeed you will have some task ahead.

My best wishes to you.

Hi Zvh

what brand is the removed one? and where is it, did you have it with you?

What? did you receive money blindly?

Sand in Lister? Was it drowned? swallowed water?

First things first: C stands (in serial plate) for clockwise, so it will turn in that way seen from flywheel.

That engine MUST be fixed and running in bench. Less then that you will burn your time, your patience, your mony, and your health.

You are free to teel us all the story.

Hi Zvh

"The guy that's asked me to fit it to his boats not to bothered about the engine , and doesn't want to spend any money on it". And you are bothered about it?

He doesn't want to spend any cent, but you want to spend your time? There is no such friendship.

Are you earning any money with your time? if not, let it go and tell dad's friend things are not like this.

Dont messup with that engine, just my humble opinion.

Hi Zvh_greatwhite

A closer look to that engine, it seems to need some TLC, unless you just want it to run and go till it give last breath!

As far I can see it doesnt got the chain to link raised start handle! Amoung other suprises you will have!

Any help needed we are all here!
