This is the LH View of our Cooper-Bessemer gas engine. Flywheels are 68" diameter,
bore & stroke is approximately 9 1/2 X 14. The gadget in front of the Cooper is an
old B&S engine, driving an air compressor for starting the Cooper. Note the tank
under the big engine. You can see from the RH View that there's a clutch and 
belt pulley on the crankshaft. The exhaust stack is 4" diameter.
Here's a picture of a boring bar setup for working on large cylinders; it came
from Guy Lautard's Machinest Bedside Reader, Vol. 2, page 96. You should really
have all of the volumes! (3 at present)
