45617ETB1953 This engine was an excellent find it is in near-perfect condition as far as outside appearance, it is also set up with a 32 V generator and switchboard, one of which I am not sure if it is original or has been custom-made.

It was used then from 1972 to 2001 to water 2200 heard of cattle at Manilla I inherited it in 1990. To my knowledge it didn’t have any repairs till now. I have been associated with this engine since 1954 and are in the process of having it rebuilt (11/2005) NSW

48247ETB1954 Sydney NSW Brought this engine off ebay in 2007 from a pump collector in Tamworth.  He'd brought elsewhere and had recovered the water pump from it. Sold it as is still on the wooden sled. Original condition and looks like a complete engine, but hadn't been going  for some time - diesel remaining in  tank had gone off and there was about a litre of water in the bottom  of  the sump. Currently under restoration, engine has been dismantled and is being cleaned. Looks generally OK inside except for all bearings on the crank which will need overhaul/replacement.
