Robey Hot-Bulb Oil Engine


A well-known UK manufacturer of industrial engine equipment, Robey were not involved with marine engines, and had little business in this field. The engine shown was included in the book of marine hot-bulb engines as being representative of the type, albeit not sold for marine use. The middle picture is from a 1909 book, the bottom picture from a 1938 book, which would suggest a reasonably long production period, with most mechanical details remaining the same.

Robey was involved in land-based agricultural machinery such as road rollers etc.
