Daren,

Now that is an interesting beast.  Usually one sees the WW2 or post-war units, not the between wars models.  Looks like it uses the 600EW-F28 style heads on unique to the stationary engine barrels and crankcase.  Pity it is so far away or I might be tempted.  Letís have a picture of the other side.

-Doug

Hi Daren,
Doug in particular was interested to see this engine and asked for a photo of 'the other side' -  I'm sire other members would like to see more too - how about some more photos?

It would not be the first, or the second time I've had an engine in the checked in and carry on bags! Once an E29 and trans, and another time an A31 and a set of Norton roadholder forks. However for the return flight from the Centenary celebrations, I rather had my sights set on an entire 2-3/4hp...  :wink:

Primary usage was in Douglas Stillage and Lift trucks of the early to mid thirties, like this example in the Kingswood Heritage Museum, Warmley, Bristol:

And the engine in its native environment:
