I know we all work long hours etc - but what do we all do outside of our working lives?
I collect and show antique engines...some call me old before my time but I don’t care!
Here’s a short clip of my favourite engine ticking over - a 1915 Crossley G110 single cylinder engine running on propane (used to run on town gas back in the day) I can’t see any engines of today running so well at 103 years old!
It has a bore of 5” and a stroke of 11” bringing the cubic capacity to nigh-on 3.4 litres in a single cylinder.....but it starts reliably with a spin of the flywheel. I’ve got four other engines, I’ll find some video of them running too.
