Thank you for all the movies, Arnold

Your welcome Arnold
I know there are more videos than I could expect anyone  to watch (or want to) but  it gives  a good overall example of what  the Simple  Wilesco can be 😊

That would now reside at your fine residence Nick , but I did like it (a lot) I must have gotten caught up in the moment to have let it go, but it did go to a fine home 😊👍

I am kinda feeling left out here.  I have several of the SPS Jensen Engines....but no SPS Wilesco Engine.

We gotta change that! 🤠

Charlie, you don't have one? Why heck, even I have one, the D14EL.

I thought I had missed Wilesco offering a D14 EL.

Now, I'm pretty certain it's been Bruce-ified...!!!

Nice mod.

Bruce my friend ....... it seems your ingenuity (or should that be Engine-new-ity) seems to know no bounds.

Creative, prolific and fully competent at what you do. Impressed I am, and well impressed at that!!!

Hi Bruce,

Just went through the entire thread, in an attempt to get the "full picture" here  :)

Already have commented on the stationary engines, but i really like the mobiles and their mods too.
Some of them even rebuilt pretty extensively, but all changes appear well pondered and very nicely executed.

Well done & thanks for sharing!

PS:
...and thanks for the the final movie, with the trio of traction engines, it just made me realise how stupid i was to let (almost) my entire Wilesco collection go.
Will definitely not be going for a complete collection again, but there is certainly a handful which will be added here again, including an older D40.
Cheers
Jan

Jan ,I had "convinced" myself that Jensen's were the only thing to seriously collect & respect, that many of the other offerings went unappreciated for a very long time. Thank you for the nice words my friend.
