Tom , I think is all there. Several stray pieces piled up beside the engines. What bedplate do you have? I may have extras. This is a Oil City steam with some trinkets you might need ???

Pulled this nice old 20 Pattin out of a bamboo patch today. A fellow Stacker pulled this off the well site a few years back. Should be a nice runner not stuck and comes with the matching brass tag #1971. Thanks Myles

Question Re: Cast from the Past - 15hp Pattin

Looking good! Bet it has a real loud bark, with that short exhaust! Was the hot tube assembly with it, or do you have to make one up?

Looks like the hot tube bushing was broke off a good while back. Need to get with John Burns for some top knotch replacement parts.

Check out this engine failure and the repair, This would make a great engine show display. I would say the cylinder was tooo heavy, needed some support. Cylinder looks good on the outside may try to save it from the junkers.

Looks like the cylinder laid where she fell. No cracks but the exhaust was up like a funnel for years. Looks to be a 20hp Oil Well Supply. True halfbreed did anyone notice the Reid flywheels.

Found this big Bessemer in the wild last week. Don't know what Hp it is, but the crank measures 4 1/2". Still has the valve and ecentric for the mag, cylinder not cracked but stuck and missing the connecting rod & brass.

Be nice to drag that one out, Gives me food for thought.......I have a 48 inch by 10 inch flatbelt pulley I was thinking of putting on my 20hp bessemer,...I might as well it too has the stub shaft on the crank. Keep hunting Skidmore.....leave no stones unturned
