Flat base, cast engine frame and probably a brass flywheel ... Nice!

SE-2 though isn't it ... as it has the exhaust throttle?

Here is a video I just made of the new M14 by Jin.

I provided links to buy these in the YouTube description but it's free advertising as I bought the engine.

I did run it belted up to a Jensen generator and it worked great but that video did not come out. 
(In other words, I did not turn on the camera properly so I will do that again soon.)

Enjoy,

Gil

Nice work, Jim...!!!

You've got it dialed in nicely.

And....... You are having plenty of fun with it!

Good stuff, my friend.

I believe Gil has run his for hours at a time indoors. When I went to NAMES they had a few periods of time where the gas engines had to shut down for awhile for the air to clear  :D  I told my wife not to wear her contacts into the show, but she did anyway because she hates wearing glasses and it really bothered her eyes.

One big advantage of the ubiquitous 'domino box' is the small real estate that they take up on a shelf.

Is there a possibility that I could send it to you for a through assessment, and possibly even consideration for a return to operation. I would not have to have a one hundred percent perfect restoration. I would rely very much on your observations and experience. I just checked the boiler with a magnet. It is BRASS! No adhesion to the upper section. One thing I would want to pass on to you is that I am only interested in the best we could do for this particular engine. Your experience, judgement, and technical skills and access to the proper tools lead me to believe that this would be my best option. I would certainly pay the freight to get it to you for a look see. Bart 1353
To keep those interested up to date , I have sent you a private msg (hopefully you know how to access it , if not let us know on this thread) I am working on getting you your cylinder assembly & have some promising leads.

Running much better  8)

Thanks Nick, do you run yours much?

No, not much at all. I play with all my toys in the winter and when it’s nice outside I play with my full size toys instead. I’d either get in trouble for stinking up the house running this in the basement or I’d gas myself out  :D

I ran one for about 8-10 minutes in my steam room (door open window closed) the other day, didn't notice any smell. Went outside of the room for a little while to do something and when I went back in the smell was really noticeable.
