Hi everyone, we were at a sale on Saturday and couldn't resist buying a tidy looking Scammell engine.It has had something coupled onto it at some time inthe past and the first words to enter my head were of course "Fire Pump".After the sale some friends and I had a bit of a chinwag about the engine and there are a few theories being bandied about about it's past.The thing which is causing debate to rage is it's colour,it is green(obviously original)instead of the usual red.Military use was one of the options but it is a lighter shade of green than the usual army green.Another possible was that it powered a large mowing machine for cricket pitches etc. The name plate has both an engine no. and a pump no. so I still favour the pump option.If anyone has any info on these engines/pumps I would be very interested. Cheers,Kenny.
