A Little Visit With The Mailbox Engine

We all piled in the family car today and visited our friend Gary Bahre at his engine shed so we could see first-hand his progress on the 8 HP Bessemer.  We shot several pics, and just a little video.  The cylinder  is out for surgery, and it now has a sleeve installed.  The intake and exhaust ports have to be cut, and the rings have to be fitted, then it will come back to Gary.  He has his parts assembled to build a new rod, and that will be happening soon.  Stay Tuned!  It will run again!
