|Peerless portable engine - stock code 7674|
A small Peerless portable engine, dating from around 1904 we believe. It's a diminutive thing, probably around two tons all up and in remarkably good condition for its age - it looks never to have been derelict, turns over very freely still, the mechanical parts are in good order without excessive wear. Boiler has had three tubes removed for inspection - they're beaded in both ends, quite the quality job. Missing firebars (although we have a couple as a pattern) and ashpan, otherwise it looks to be complete.
Wheels are wooden, traditionally built with iron bands. Nearside ones pretty good, both offside require repair work, although look salvageable.
Height 83 inches
Width 70 inches
Flywheel 36 inch diameter
