So I'm curious,
does any one else here play with old stationary engines for fun?
What have you got?
Haven't done anything yet but I keep watching vids on YouTube of static jet engines made from old turbocharger running on propane.
I've just about convinced myself I could do this safely...
Someone I knew built one but it was very inconsistent, starting and running erratically.
Blackstone Engines are fun... ;-)
Just watch out for the multi-ton flywheels... they hurt.
They have a very deep sound, kinda unique among the horizontal engines. You got one?
I would love to find a small petrol but they are kinda scarce in SA.
I bought a Lister G2 engine yesterday
I explore abandoned Mines, I have access to a few, but I don't own one, as I think my Landlord would throw a ****-fit if I parked a Morse or similar in my front garden.
Have you taken any pictures?
Lol, engines do get messy. Even with the pressure cleaner, the driver is a mess
