Missing crankcase fron cover and bent crank on the calibrator side. Calibrator glass missing, decompressor assembly missing.


Inspection/Rebuild
2010-12-02

On arrival this engine was found to have a bent crank. A replacement crank and other parts have been donated and in November 2010 the engine was stripped and rebuilt. The engine was in a poor state internally and still required new rings fitting before it can be run. Now fitted to a Hamworthy compressor on steel skids.
