This beautiful little side shaft engine belongs to the
Coolspring Power Museum. I adopted this engine in the fall of
1996 at the October show for restoration. This is my way of contributing
to the museum. It was built between 1908
and 1911 in Friendship, NY. The engine has a beautiful vertical flyball
governor and full base. If you notice on the mixer it is dual fuel
and will run on either gas or gasoline. I have had a lot of fun restoring
this engine and am going to hate to return it to the museum. I have made quite
a few new parts for the Rumsey
because of the ware, nothing was really broken. I hope you enjoy the photos
of the Rumsey....
Check out this Rumsey invoice from 1898 that
sent me. Thanks Dave!
Here are some pictures of the Rumsey after the primer and paint have
been applied. Also the pictures so the assembly of the side shaft,
flywheels, head, etc....
