This is a vintage Horizontal Wilesco D-8 steam engine, grey base. The D-8 is seldom seen. It is in great operational condition. Aesthetically it is very nice also. I tested it and it ran great.It has the same engine as the D-12. The original whistle and original safety valve both work. It has the original fuel tray. It also has the original smoke stack. I flushed the boiler and cleaned and resealed the sight glass.
It is a mid size engine with the power of a large one. I threw in a 250ml (8oz) filler bottle, a bag of hexamine fuel and a bottle of steam cylinder oil as well. It is mounted on a hand crafted Florida Cypress plague. I used existing holes to mount it with stainless steel screws.
Please view all the pictures. What you see, is what you get. In order to expedite your order I go to the post office as soon as it opens. Since they are pre-packed, I cannot combine engines. I can combine small accessories.Machine- L 10 X W 8 X H 9.5. Plaque- L 9.75 X W 11.75X H 1. Vintage Horizontal Wilesco D-8 live steam engine, grey base, hard to find.
