Douglas Industrial Engines
« on: 01 May 2006 at 11:50 »
I have recently aquired a twin cylinder industrial engine type FT35/ (the predecessor of the T35), which used to be part of a generating set for the british military in the 40's.
I'm getting a copy of the operating manual from Reg Holmes, and was wondering if any one had a copy of the parts manual with all the part numbers in (illustrated would be ideal).

If any one had a copy i would most grateful for their help.

Hi and welcome to the forum.
Would you care to send a photo of your engine see here for how to send/post photos - I am personally interested to know just how different the industrial engine was to the bike motor. I believe they must have been very similar as my '48 T35 was restored using cylinders and I believe some other parts from an industrial motor such as yours.

As to a parts manual I suggest you try John Withers (Western Australia) - see here for list of books etc available and contact details.
