Re: Jensen 35 “transitional” acquired, questions...

  Thanks Bruce, that must be what it is, as the heater is ceramic and round (about 3/4 inch diameter), and clearly original to the engine. But, wouldn’t all of the riveted boiler “transition” 35 engines (and the “forgotten” 35) have had the same boiler and heating element? If not, then maybe it is more special than I assumed. The person I bought it from said that it belonged to his grandfather, and he last remembered playing with it in the early 1960s. So, no way that I would trust it to still be in safe working order by now (I could be wrong). Otherwise, overall the engine appears to be in decent condition, piston and flywheel move freely, no damage or solder repairs on the boiler, etc.

    Will post photos soon
