Item specifics

Used: An item that has been used previously. See the seller’s listing for full details and description of ... Read moreabout the condition

This a model of a 1915 Holt Caterpillar gasoline engine, 4-cylinder, overhead valve, 4-stroke, water-cooled engine, 1" bore, 1 1/4" stroke, individual cast iron cylinders, external pushrods, cast iron flywheels (2), and aluminum crankcase. The crankshaft and camshaft are steel and are machined from the solid. The pistons are aluminum with cast iron piston rings. Compression is good on all cylinders.

The model, complete with radiator and fuel tank, measures 16" long x 6" wide x 10" high, and weighs 19 lbs.

I have to admit that, unfortunately, my attempts to get this engine to run have not been successful. It will fire, but, on my own, I have not been able to manipulate the various adjustments to keep it running. Throttle opening, choke, carburettor jet setting, ignition advance and retard, while holding a power drill for turning the engine, all require more than my two hands to control them, but I believe that with patience and some assistance, the purchaser should be more successful than I have been.

Ignition is by a 6-volt battery and coil, housed in a wooden box, with switch and external terminals.

The engine will be shipped with the sump drained, and 30W oil should be added through the sump fill plug.

This model is one I built some years ago from castings and drawings supplied by Coles Power Models Inc., and would be a fine addition to anyone's collection. The drawings will be included in the sale.
