Looks like a #30/40 boiler conversion to open flame.

Wow, first one I've ever seen "in the wild"!

Do you suppose that it left Jensen in that configuration, or was that something an owner did to be able to run an otherwise stand-alone engine?

Anybody know what price the hammer came down on, or at least a general ballpark range???

Hi Daniel, the price you see... 375 is the hammer final.
Add to that buyers premium of 75 plus sales tax and you are up arround 480.
Safe to assume with shipping you are all in at just over 500.
Grand Larceny for sure...!!!

Jensen would not have used such a nice slab of wood and would not have stuck the safety valve in an elbow on the side and would npt have extended the whistle or side mounted it. No matter... a very nicely done rig.

Grand Larceny perhaps .... but I'd gladly get held up for that amount to bring that baby home!!!

& Hey Nick .... if you aren't just spoofin' us, then MAJOR CONGRATULATIONS on an amazing score .... Well Done That!

Hi Daniel, grand larceny on Nick's side of the trade, not the auction house.

Congratulations, Nick! You got some very interesting pieces at great prices.

Yeah, I expect that rare little gem should have brought well into four figures, and probably even a few notches up in the left-hand column at that!!!
