    Anyone any ideas on this recently arrived small gas engine, apologies for the blurry second pic



    The engine has been in store with Bolton Museum Service since the 70's and has now passed to us.

    I would suggest a Henry Butler Hercules circa 190?, looking in the A-Z. Could be a Madison version as there seems to be a link between the 2 companies.

    I dunno, first a hot fog machine and now a Handbag engine. Are you going soft P? :lol:
