Default Conord F0 Engine

Well, my New Years goal of reducing the collection rather than growing it lasted a full 10 hours... This lovely little Conord popped up this morning locally, so I adopted it!









Does anyone have any information on these engines please? Are they the same as the Bernard W0? Does anyone have a spare fuel tank that is better than the lace curtain that I have please?

Thanks & Regards,

Happy New Year!

Dan

A new bottom panel will probably be the fix, however it will be a challenge as it has been subjected to weld, solder, glass fibre resin and epoxy in previous attempts to seal it by the looks of things. It's going to take a lot of cleaning to get back to a point where solder will stick reliably. It will go in the restoration queue whilst I keep an eye out for spares.

Ah I see hence the wanted request. Well I've seen your workshop and your not lacking in projects! Put this under the bench and get on with that hornsby, I really want to see that running

Hi Dan
that engine dates from 1938 and is a type 3 F0 made up till 1944 when the type 4 was produced and the only difference to a Bernard W0 is the conord name plate .bernards stopped production of conord engines when they acquired the company in 1929 . The fuel tank problem is a common problem with this type of engine due to water ingress through the top of the tank where the fuel tap spindle goes ,there are tanks about but they take some finding (it took me 2 years to find one ) ignition timing is measured using circumference of the fly wheel so 58mm before tdc inlet valve clearance 0.3mm exhaust 0.4mm

Brilliant! Thanks Oliver for the information. I think the tank can be repaired (when I've nothing else to do!!!), though I will keep an eye open on eBay and at Nuenen for a better one.

Regards,

Dan

Tank on mine also has some old epoxy 'repairs' - holding for now!

Francoise Barral is your best bet for info and parts.

Probably. It popped up on Facebook, and seen as it was only 15 miles away I was there within an hour!
