Is there a joke hiding in there, one that failed to translate from cornish ?

No Stuart Turner supplied engines to run chicken pluckers. They had the flat pulley with starting dog mounted on the flywheel.

Genset engines were started from the generator end as the flywheel had a generator bolted to it.

Edit: unless it was a belt drive genset then it was governor end starting usually.

Whats wrong with chicken pluckers, a friend of mine rallied one for years, he used to use real dead chickens until the public complained so he then used plastic ones.

A starter pulley like this one? Will have a small list myself when everything is sorted, no hurry though.

I assumed this style though the genset one could be made to fit with a 3 leg spider.

That's the one I need, cures all my problems in one go, I get a pulley long enough to drive the coolant pump and something else, and I can start it on a handle.
Also at that length I wouldn't have to modify anything, except the water pump belt length.
I have seen similar on a P55 generating set, and on a 5XC

Very rarely I've seen a stubby version on a P55, tend to be earlier engines, normally the ones with brass carbs marine or stationary. More commonly seen on a P55 is starting via generator end or from the governor end via the radiator housing.

P5XC were fitted in Zwickys and had a starting dog like some older cars (well like my Hillman Imp) where there is 2 studs on the handle to engage onto the flywheel. A bit hard to start with a crook handle when mounted in the back of a bowser above ground level, my grandfather used to hate them out Culdrose.
The Generators I've seen with P5X used have been started from the generator end as in the P4. But always enjoy to see
more.

I've also seen a twin v pulley with the crook starting dog, mounted to a P4 IIRC.

I'm not trying to be a knob head, I've spent quite a bit of time with Stuart Turners and have a seen a good amount of information on them and their variations. Been gather bits and bobs for the past 7 years or so, but had a interest in ST for about 26 years now. Just letting you know you may have to look a while.
The bad but interesting thing with ST is they were open to making special engines for clients in small numbers so every no and then a odd engine appears, there is a hopper cooled P4 floating about somewhere.


I'm not sure how popular ST were as standalone stationary engines but attached is a couple of pictures from a Stationary Engine only brochure, it would seem most were sold as pump/generator set etc, I need to sneak into Peter's day books and read them cover to cover......

Forgot you had that one Pete, unusual set and nice to see it complete.
