Weeden model 121 -SOLD
« on: July 05, 2020, 02:24:17 pm »
SOLD 7/8/2020 complete and running Weeden 121. This is the electric version. There doesn’t seem to be many of these in captivity. About the only thing I’ve been able to find about the 121 is from Weedensteam.com.
The boiler(with jacket) is 4 1/4” diameter by 8” long. Bore x stroke is 3/4” x 1 1/4”. Flywheel diameter is 5”.
The detail on this engine pretty fine. You’ll need some watchmakers tools to tinker with it.
Some minor imperfections: 1. one oil cup is a replacement, every thing else is original. 2. The slot on the slotted set screw that secures the PTO pulley is buggered up. 3. The tiny try-cocks next to the sight glass don’t drain anything. Are they dummies? If anyone knows, please let me know.
Weedensteam reports one of these engines selling for $685 in 2009, therefore, I will boldly ask $500 or best offer for this one. If there’s no interest, I’ll list on eBay and see what happens. Cheers!   https://youtu.be/jYB4vsBSaJE

Not gonna argue with you there, but our van just hit 250K miles and my fingers are crossed that it'll make it through our summer vacation... don't think I should be making any big purchases right now...

I just wanted to thank those whom were thinking about purchasing this engine for NOT buying it...😉 , you left the door open for me to acquire a very nice engine that with a bit of minor work now runs like a sewing machine.  I couldn't be happier with it . Tom packaged it extremely well & although it is fairly delicate,  it arrived safely & damage free, thanks again Tom 😊👍
