This is being sold in 'as seen' condition and would make a fantastic winter rebuild to result in a pleasant engine. For a good working example of this Burrell, we would usually advertise for in the region of £15,000 so in selling for the below price, we have given the new owner plenty of wiggle room to carry out any required work. The boiler last had a boiler test around the time it was commissioned circa 2000/2001. Since then the engine has seen plenty of private use. It comes with a good paper trail so, assuming there are no issues with the boiler as seen, we see no reason why a boiler inspector would turn it away. It has a pre-2001 boiler certificate and material certificates. Any prospective buyers are more than welcome to view and inspect the engine on our premises at your leisure. This is an example which we will carry out no work on and we will not be carrying out a boiler certificate. We are willing, however, to carry out a hydraulic test and thickness testing to give an indication of the longevity of the boiler.

The engine is complete, the motion and drive train are all present and turn over as they should. The motion has some compression on turning over by hand and has no serious play but will likely need an overhaul to tidy it up. I believe it has run in recent times so has not been sat for too long. The paintwork would be considered poor with the remaining red flaking off and the cladding being a range of colours. As typical, it is fitted with an injector and mechanical water pump. This design is a single cylinder, 2-speed and is fitted with Ramsbottom type safety valves and a Pickering style governor. A winch cable is also fitted to the drum. It is running on strakes which is nice to see, it gives an authentic looking profile and makes light work of muddy fields. We would be able to recommend ways of fitting rubber tyres; we would also be able to recommend Bridport Foundry who produce the castings for the Plastow designs and so would be able to help with castings for this example if needed.

As with all our engines, we highly recommend coming to view this example if it is of interest. We have listed it under our 'project miniatures' part of the website but would consider this a lightly project that some engines we see come through. It includes a removable seat and some, if not all, its drawings. 

 

SOLD

For more information please speak to Matt or Sean on 01392 833301. As with all of our engines, we strongly recommend viewing the engine in person on our premises. Please ensure you phone ahead to let us know you're on your way!
