Default Gilson Guelph

I have had this engine over a year never ran it more than a few minutes
I sold it a couple of months ago and is to be picked up at the
Guinness records for threshing next weekend

thought I better make sure it runs as he is counting on it to run a threshing machine

It's been running now for about https://youtu.be/VELAu47tUIU4 hours should be good to go

That's a really nice thresher, Denis!
How much power does it take to thresh with that machine? How small did they build wooden threshers, commercially? Mechanically powered, that is; flails and ox hooves don't count.

This one here is about the size of Denis
We were using a 3 hp Fairbanks

I think around 6 hp would work well

The horse won't be there this time to old
