Ian Kinzie wrote to us recently attaching a pic of this attractive nameplate, Serial No. 020027, of a Fielding 95 BHP Oil Engine, requesting further information. Regrettably, he doesn’t have the engine to go with it!
The year of manufacture is mid 1928, the bore 15 1/2″ dia. x 24″ stroke, the flywheel approx. 8′ dia. x 15″ wide and the crankshaft and flywheel would weigh approx. 7.6 tons.
The engine would be a Cold Breach type, meaning that it is equipped with a water-cooled breach and indirect injection requiring the hot tube to be heated red hot to aid starting. The second and third pics are typical examples of a similar sized engine.
