Blackstone oil engine startup
1909 10HP Blackstone oil engine was used for pumping water from a river to a market garden. The engine was sabotaged in the 1920s by someone blowing up the cylinder with explosives. A new cylinder was installed and the engine was returned to service for a number of years when it eventually fell into disuse. A number of river floodings submerged the engine and it was eventually partially buried in silt. It was recovered in the 1990s and in 1997 it was dismantled, cleaned and started again after many years of neglect. The starting procedure requires heating of the hot bulb with a blow lamp in order to vaporise the fuel ( kerosene ) and to preheat the internal combustion chamber to allow fuel ignition.

Vertical diesel Blackstone producing 12hp at 850 rpm. After being in storage for 40 years this is the first run, on a temporary water tank. The only work done was to clean and flush the engine and put fresh oil in. The injector could do with a service but otherwise she is in excellent condition.
