STUART COMPOUND Stationary engine

Here we have a STUART COMPOUND model. This is the small compound launch engine with reversing gear which has been provided with a larger flywheel and is connected to a small water pump. The pump has a casting mark labelling it as WHITENEY. Apart from the change of flywheel this model is the standard Stuart small compound engine.  I have had the model running on compressed air but only as a twin, there being a change over valve to switch from a twin to a compound. A small displacement lubricator is fitted for cylinder lubrication. Overall the fit and finish is quite nice and would certainly make a nice display item or possibly a power unit for a model steam boat with some minor modifications.         NOW SOLD                 £375.00
