This is a vintage, Horizontal, Wilesco D-22, two cylinder steam engine in excellent condition. Of the 600+ engines that have passed thru my shop, this is my personal favorite. It is a large two cylinder engine.These engines are a fine example of German engineering. It is a double acting, reversible engine with a throttle control. It also has the original safety valve and the advanced style whistle with pull chain. There is also a drain valve on the large boiler. I cleaned and resealed the sight glass as well. The burner system is adjustable to save fuel or to put the fire on it. It is a power house. This is an early version of the D-22. The gauge was not acting proper, so I made an adapter for a new stock gauge from my shop and included it.
I will put the original gauge in the box too. It measures in both PSI and KPa. I made a copy of the instructions from my personal D-22 and some other info I put together.I included a new box of Esbit fuel, a bottle of steam engine oil, and a 250ml (8 ounce) incremented fill bottle. I tested this engine and it ran great. It is mounted on a hand crafted Florida Cyprus plague.
I used existing holes to mount it with stainless steel screws. Please view all the pictures. What you see, is what you get. Since they are pre-packed, I cannot combine engines.
The post office has lost or destroyed three of my items since February causing me considerable loss. This comes across as a scam to me. I retired a few years ago and have always enjoyed working in my shop.
I have been intrigued with steam engines since I was very young. One of the things on my bucket list was to learn how to operate a metal lathe and a mill. When I retired these two things came together for me and I have been refurbishing toy steam engines ever since. From the time I started till now, I have refurbished several hundred engines.
I test every engine before I sell it. I get great pleasure in bringing these guys back to life and knowing that folks are getting a good running steamer. I was a carpenter for many years, so I also make the Cyprus plaques as well.
Sometimes I do well sometimes not. Enjoy your stream engine, Ric Dickens. Machine- L 13.5" X W 11.5" X H 12.25. Plaque- L 15.5" X W 14.25 X H 1".
