Default Stuart R2

I've been offered what I've been told is an R2 (pinch of salt taken!) s/no 90068 - would the ST gurus be able to confirm the type and date please? It looks more like a P2 to me. It seems to be in fine running order on a trolley with cooling tank - would a value of around 250 be about correct?

Paul.

Looks like 30068 to me, which would make it the 68th built.

Was on eBay a while ago.

http://www.stationary-engine.net/for...ad.php?t=44030

Similar age to mine, being serial 31033 and I expect it has a WICO WB flywheel magneto (used on early engines not many about), sadly it would seem it's been bypassed by a chain drive alternative.

250 would be too strong for me, there is a full genet on Facebook at the moment for 250. Too me 150 engine only for a good'un, but opinions may very.

PS probably an R3 at that age. No such engine as a P2.

For comparison, a later R2 with generator for sale at 250 as a non-runner (no fuel pipe). In Hampshire.

Sorry - should have been P3, not that I'm well versed in ST lore. I see it didn't sell on ebay at 150 so a deal to be done. The ID plate photo is much better on the ebay listing, no mistaking the number at 30068. I'm after trading my ZA for something I can get into my car without risking my dodgy disc popping again.

Paul.

At around 50kg the R3 isn't something I'd want to lift into a car too often...

I think it was pulled from eBay early.

I think it's the earliest R3 I'm aware of but not 250 worth.

My BSA genset is 45kg with only the carry frame to lift it with so 50kg (plus weight of trolley, tanks etc) to push up ramps isn't too onerous.

Paul,

Dave Dinning must be the person you re dealing with then as he had bought the engine. Below are some other pics of it. I would not recommend buying if you re looking for something "light" to lift in the boot. It is everything except close to being lightweight.

Ah ok I used to lift the Scott PAB in the boot, while it was manageable I did enjoy the help at the field...

That's the chap indeed. So long as the engine is on wheels & the exhaust is easily removed it will go up ramps into the back of my Citroen C4 Picasso without needing a winch. My ZA is just too much of a lump to manhandle by myself. I used to have a decent trailer & winch but they got sold when our garage in the old house was converted into a room.

I used to have a P4 so know that small does not always equal light.

Paul.
