We have one of the 4 cylinder horizontal Crossley Engines in our club rooms. The Wellington Vintage Machinery Inc., from Wellington in New Zealand. Our engine is dated in 1929.

Hi Ian    nice looking twin there at that mine site, Looks like two single engines coupled by a common crank and single flywheel.  Now that gets me thinking,  How the hell will you find enough room for it in your shed or back Yard.??  Might be enough room on the front lawn ,    cheers  John

Hi John the mine site is heritage listed and the engine will never be moved, pity as it is slowly been striped for parts
