Default Crossley OE without sideshaft?

Hi all

I have another question about a Crossley, apparently type OE, but it has no sideshaft and the rocker arms are on the head. I cannot find any info, even not a picture, on the internet. It has 2 flywheels with 5 spokes. I am guessing it dates from the '50s but not sure. Any ideas?

Thanks again
Marcel

Read bottom of page O/OE appear to be late 30s models?

A bit more info implies type OE were even earlier.

More O/OE data.

Hi Marcel.

A 1920s engine. Chain driven camshaft. I have the larger version, type FOE1 which is 28hp. I'll sort out pictures this evening when I'm home from work. I have a manual for it, should be available for download from internalFire.com

Regards,

Dan

Here is a picture, I wouldn't have thought it was that early?

They were built in the late 1920s and the 1930s. This is a picture of one from 1931 at a show in East Yorkshire.

Rather a handsome brute - bit like the later horizontal Blackstone diesels.

A few pics of my Crossley FOE1 (Large size, 28hp, with "Electric" heavy flywheels) taken several years ago when I fetched it home. This engine was despatched on October 9th 1929.

Marcel - I have just found a parts list for these engines which I could copy for you should you need it.

Regards,
Dan
