Small by name and nature. The brass plate on the engine reads "J.D Small, Maker, Sydney". An identical engine is shown in Patrick Knight's A-Z of British engines as a A J Wright. It stated that these engines were available finished or as a casting kit. I would guess that this one may have been a kit and finished here in Australia.
I purchased this engine on 19 April 2005. It seems to be in good condition but I will have to make up a burner for the hot tube and put a new intake valve spring on the engine.
After a good clean up. The paintwork is in excellent condition for its age.
1st May 2005: Belted up to an electric motor to bed everything in and to attempt to get it running.
A temporary tap setup to get the gas/air mixture right. We managed to get one pop. Still more fiddling to be done.
