    Hi All,

    Can somebody help me with the indentification from this Crossley?
    It's mounted in a dutch windmill to prodce power when there was no wind.
    Engine original ran on citygas produced by nearby factory, but seems to be converted to
    natural gas a while ago.
    We hope to get the engine running someday.
    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Hello Koen, your engine looks to be an O or P type gas engine. I would think any thing from 1895 to 1905. Have you the number? Should be on the top front of cylinder and big end. I one similar of 1895 . My experience shows that you would be better running on propane. Natural gas is a 'lazy' gas and can make them difficult to start! John
