Default Scott SE

Hello,

Took a trip north with my Overdue wife, see if the roads up north would shake the baby out lol

While I was up there I picked up my new beauty!







Here is the name tag, It took two pictures, one shows it as a SR on as a SE, will have a closer look again, Also the serial number is very low at 25, which either makes it very early or a anomaly as most other are 3 figures.





It is also stamped into the top of the cylinder



SE19 is cast into the crank case



This one looks like it was fitted with a 3 leg spider bit this seems to have been destroyed!



The magneto and bracket, has been adapted including the impulse fitting.





Cheers Steve

Took the pipe work off and gave it a quick degrease



Here you can see the throttle linkage is very similar to a Villiers WX11



Governor spring tension screw



As you can see this has been beaten on the end of the shaft



The magneto that is there is dead but check out the scorch marks



Cheers Steve

Hi Steve,

Well, the good news is that you've got the oldest Scott SE type engine known to me. Serial number SE 25 would have been built in the early 1930's, possibly as early as 1930 or 1931. I first became aware of this engine in 1988 when it was located in the Plymouth area. I see it still carries the Wico A magneto that it had then, although the governor system now appears to be complete. The owner at the time reported that it had been found driving a water pump.

Cheers Phillip,

So I presume they started at 1?

Looks like it come from close to home then france :D

The magneto is brown bread, I can see where the impulse would help in starting, I can hardly turn it over compression its mega! makes a hell or a thump! I will be in contact with a friend Andrew for a more fitting magneto.

The internals feel ok will have a close look though, shame the spider has been smashed up. will see if I can get a flat pulley, and a starting handle :D

the pipe work and oilers will also be swapped out for a more eye pleasing arraignment

Cheers Steve

Got around to making the exhaust gasket for this.

I've got all my grandfathers cutters, not that they are much good they are blunt as anything, but does the job.

IMG_20160303_145157 by Stephen Williams, on Flickr

Didn't quite come out exactly....

IMG_20160303_145619 by Stephen Williams, on Flickr

Looking better now.

IMG_20160303_150058 by Stephen Williams, on Flickr

I know it's not right but I quite like the exhaust it has now.

IMG_20160303_150115 by Stephen Williams, on Flickr

Just the base to build now.... I've got an idea in my head but my wood working skills are lacking... I have bought some chisels to neaten up my joints...

Cheers, Steve

Had a go at making a trolley it is known I am not the best (that is an understatement!) at wood work but I do like to try.... Hence I've used cheap wood, no good me buggering up expensive wood....

IMG_20160423_185932 by Stephen Williams, on Flickr

Those end bits have been cut off now.

IMG_20160423_185950 by Stephen Williams, on Flickr

How it should go with the pump.

IMG_20160423_190452 by Stephen Williams, on Flickr

Judging on my previous attempts it's probably a better job than the other, still crap though lol though I am fairly pleased.

It will be taken apart sanded, stained/painted haven't decided then put back together. Oh and I need to work out how I'm going to fit the wheels etc..

Cheers, Steve
