Default Hot air engine rider - ericsson 6"

Here is the progress in the restoration of an Ericsson Rider pump purchased this summer.

The engine is in good condition, requires only a few operations:
- widen the wheelbase (to improve stability)
- new refractory material for the furnace
- new gasket for the power cylinder
- new collector for the furnace chimney
- eliminate old non-original paint layers
- some maintenance to the water pump

.... and we hope to start it for Christmas : Yahoo:

Avec ce frais, en Italie, il y avait 38 ° C, je ai eu la tentation d'un moteur à air chaud ..... :matraque1:

Il est arrivé aujourd'hui :applaudissemen

voici une RIDER - ERICSSON 6"
