Bamford
 
4 Attachment(s)
Quite a few years ago (well 5 or 6) I was at the Bamford Rally and bought a Bamford 2hp engine on its original trolley from one of the stall holders. The engine was a mess, having been robbed of all its small parts, including piston and rod, just leaving the main castings (hopper, base, flywheels and crankshaft). However the trolley was in good condition. I sold the engine parts at the 1000 engine rally the following year, but I kept the trolley as I had been promised a complete engine.

Fast forward to about a month ago, and I went to pick up the Bamford I had been promised. It now transpired that the deal had become the Bamford engine and 5 other engines in various states. A deal was done and the 6 engines came home with me. Here's the Bamford.....

Rather nice, isn't it, I was well pleased :smile:

Today it was lifted from the old trolley.....

.....and lowered onto the new trolley.

Now it's even better. Still a few missing bits if anyone has them on the shelf.
Looking for an original petrol tank, starting handle (1.5" shaft), and a silencer. If you have any of these items please send me a PM.

A good day.....

That's very nice Phillip.

Did you ever get the engine on the big trolley you came down to us for?

Very nice indeed!

Hi Simon,

Err.... no. Shortly afterwards I was able to buy an original Lister L trolley, so the big Gade is on that.

Your big trolley is sitting in the shed, and I've been wondering if I should put the Air Cooled Motor Co engine (that's currently on a Bentall trolley) on it, or do something else with it...

The Gade does look good on that L trolley.

Would be an excuse to get a Bentall if you had the trolley empty!

The trolley is for a vertical Bentall, not the Pioneer horizintal.

Thought it would be a lumpy Bentall trolley. Those verticals are made of some heavyweight cast!

No, not that one. I don't recognise a maker for that one, may not even be an engine trolley.....

The Bentall trolley seems to be generating some interest, it's probably for the 7/9hp engine, so here's a photo.
The main beams should be timber, but have been replaced with box section steel, axles have also been shortened slightly.
To give an idea of scale, the concrete slabs beneath the trolley are 24 inches square.
