8" Ericsson Hot Air Engine

Have been after this one for a few years. Didn't think I'd get a chance to restore it.

 Even came with a spare hot bulb.
 So nice to find one in it's original place of work.

Very nice find you are going to need a big tub to soak that in. Regards Rudy

Had to go back and pick up the engine last Sunday.
 Thought a small truck would be better than a trailer due to the not so good roads.

 Had it home one day and got the cold side piston out. Got the hot side soaking.
