I've decided that as I'm never likely to use or rally my P55 industrial engine, I shall sell it.
Although it had not been run in many years when I bought it, it was basically sound and I've added wheels and axles to make the original steel channel frame into a strong and neat trolley. The wheels have been bored to improve their fit and must be the best running wheels I ever saw on a stationary engine.
It's had a thorough pressure wash, I've stripped the carb and serviced the magneto. A fresh coat of paint and a little signwriting freshened it up no end and it now starts easily without gypsy's breath and runs nicely on the governor. The new exhaust system is very effective and it makes an easy neighbour to live with.
I'm about to put it up on Ebay, but if anyone on this NG is interested, you can make me an offer ;o)) . You can see some before and after photos atRegards,
