    More than 900 now marked as preserved. However engines are only marked as preserved if we have evidence that an engine exists.
    A few of those previously preserved have been broken for parts or scrapped.
    Knowledge gained during indexing and exchanges with owners helps us to help you.

    Not very many really.

    On a good note I have just gained another Appletop so will be looking soon to see if it has been indexed soon, if not then I will be emailing you for info.

    Any time Rob. Its nice to be asked and you always say thank you too.
    I suspect the real number is at least double that.

    I really should make sure all mine are indexed, most are.

    I'm constantly amazed by how many folk try to date an engine, don't read the text on the screen, don't use the provided prompt to ask for it to be indexed, and nor do they look again later to see if it has been.
    For the record I, for it is usually me, always try to deal with email requests within a day or two and will respond to the mail when it's done.
    I work on the assumption that if I don't get the email its not urgent so leave those to build up until it is convenient for me.

    Hi Roland, maybe it is just me but I find the archive system very difficult. I have been trying to get information on my 3BHP Petter engine 58130 at repeated intervals from the archives for a couple of years, sometimes I get a packing sheet come up with Internal Fire written over it, sometimes the system says there are no records. When I click on ' contact the archivist' or ' index ' nothing happens on screen.
    I really would like some information on my engine which I have owned since 1968 and copies of the records and am happy for it to be recorded. Hope you can help.
    Thanks, Philip.

    Hello Philip Your engine has been fully indexed since 2018. I can post summary details here if you wish or given your email I could send you the records. I can only say tha the system works fine for me whether signed in or out on three different browsers.
    System issues are way over my (non) pay grade and I urge you to take that up with Paul please. Its important to give feedback re bugs or they don't get fixed.
