6/1
« on: June 12, 2021, 03:40:06 AM »
Bought this fellow the other day and collected it this morning

Came from the estate of a chap who collected old engines and whose widow was clearing out the shed

Described as a "good runner" - might be true

Prices are funny . . .

I missed out on a not-particularly-good 3/1 a few months back that had sat in a shed and hadn't been run for 20 years - it went for $1500 to some insane person

This one I paid $600 for - which seems fair

If this is OK I should have two good runners, and two dismantled-but-probably-useable units and a bunch of spares

Apart from a set of grooved SOM wheels, I reckon I have all I need

Nice find. I'm still looking for a good CS.

What are you wanting the groovy startomatic flywheels for? You driving stuff?

They're a bit heavier and should smooth out starting loads.  Yes, got a couple genset heads I'd like to drive one day

Whereabouts are you if you're looking for a CS?

Cheers

Rural Whangarei, but I do get around a bit.
