Fielding & Platt Petrol Engine, Brisbane, Australia
5 HP, horizontal, open-crank, petrol-fuelled engine, with a flick-type magneto for high-tension ignition
These eleven photos have been forwarded to the Archives in December 2014.
In the owner’s words: –
I am in the process of restoring the engine, but this is mostly just the understandable wear and tear of a working engine, rather than the horrific ‘basket cases’ that sometimes confront us antique machinery restorers. This one is now back to running condition – and a very nicely running engine it is. A credit to the blokes who made it.
As can be seen from the last photograph the engine number is 4224.
