KINZERS (PAGE 2)
|Here is an engine that really makes nice stack music. This is another engine that will lull a person to sleep. 90 HP Three Ball Klein, owned by Nate Lillibridge, Voluntown, CT. Nate keeps several engines at this location. He could have a great engine show all by himself with the engines he keeps here.|
A head on view just after it was cranked up.
Here Nate is making adjustments after starting.
|This is a 60 HP De La Vergne "DH" old style oil engine owned by Nate. Unseen in the background is Leo Korb, helping start this beautiful engine.|
|Brian Mann of Sicklerville, NJ is shown here with his 25 HP Alamo. This is the earliest Alamo I have seen. This engine ran a shingle mill in Wiscasset Maine. This side of the building is pretty dark, so the photos came out pretty poor.|
|This is Brian's 20 HP Oil City engine. This is the first time I really looked at a pendulum governor. Leo Korb explained it to me so I finally have a better understanding of this simple mechanism.|
|Here is a closeup of the governor. (the white thing that looks like part of the governor is really the spout of an oil can behind it.)|
|The largest gas engine in the collection is this 485 HP Cooper tandem double acting gas engine, built by C.& G. Cooper, Mt. Vernon, Ohio in 1913. This engine ran a pumping station at Medina, Ohio, owned by the Columbia Gas Co. Here, Roger Kreibel is standing next to the crankshaft. Roger gave us a great tour of this engine|
|Here are the 11,000 lb. flywheel halves. I wish I had carried a tape recorder to get all of the dimensions of this engine. This is a very large project for a club to take on, but I know they will accomplish it in a very professional manner.|
