Photo 1928 Anderson 3HP Stationary engine

Hi Every one, this is my new Anderson, it is a very very good runner, it has very good compression, and it sounds great.
I have a video of it running on YouTube, it is under 1928 Anderson 3HP first part, and the second part is, 1928 Anderson 3HP second part, please have a look if you want.
I paid $250.00 for it, and that is a bargin for me, it has all the orignal parts, like the carb, and the mag whitch is a BTH.
Cheers
for looking
Evan.

Excellent! I watched the videos and it runs great.

Does it have a butterfly valve, or a slide, to control the fuel charge?

There seem to be several engine manufactures that have the same style head. Lister, GAMO (Gasport Motor Company), Slavia and Cushman all have models that come to mind.

Hi, Sorry for the long wait but been busy, On the carb of the Anderson it has a butterfly valve to control the air going in to it. It is just a float bowl carby.
Cheers
Evan

The engine is on the sled, all that needs doing is the water tank now.

I forgot to tell you on the phone, if we take it to field days in Rex's truck you might have to put some blocks under so we can get it on with the pallet truck if he picks it up from the club. When we get to the site on set up day we can just drag it out of the truck with my gravely or with your masport rideon or power pony. I don't want to take my rideon it will take up too much room on the truck. The Douglas and Coventry are both on the one sled and we had to pull it on and off the truck with a rope and four blokes. Not this year though! They can both stay at the club this time because the Douglas fouls its plug within a minute of running[thus the reason I won't even attempt to start it] and the Coventry spat oil all over my nice clean engines last time.

Hi Even.
You will be pleased with your efforts. I have a single flywheel one which we will start on soon, It was missing some parts, I think we now have most of the missing bits, so it will be a good project for the next winter.
Merv.
