Default COOLSPRING-35HP Bessemer twin cylinder

KK and I made the trip to retrieve it from Coolspring yesterday (11-20-2010) after it was removed from it resting place of some 40+years inside one of the buildings. It was a beautiful day (“LONG”, but good). All went well thanks to Dr. Paul Harvey and crew in getting it ready (out of the building) and the rest of the pick-up gang for KK in getting it loaded on the trailer . It will be mechanically restored and back at Coolspring for its debut at the summer show in 2011. Attached are a few of the many photos of the ordeal. I have a feeling it will be running shortly . Just trying to have "FUN" in Pa, and NJ on the way through with friends .

Moved one engine that was sitting in front of it and then rolled it out on its flywheels... Piece of cake for the crew at CPM....

Looks like the same engine at the Burton Cotton Gin in Burton Texas.

Ol' double barrelled gal is sure full up with flywheels! Nice engine! Bet the stack music from that one is impressive...

Can't say I've ever seen a twin cylinder Bessemer that small! That's a real neat engine! With those flywheels I bet she would idle down quite slow if tinkered with.

I believe that is the one Jerry McDowell removed from the compressor house just south of Sandy Lake. It is from the McComb lease which is still producing oil. Bill Klein
