|Welcome to Steve's
"Big Flywheel Engine Shed"
|With GeoCities being cancelled, you will "hopefully" note that you have been redirected to my new address.
I will try to restore and update this site and get it back into shape as soon as I can.
|Hello, I'm Steve my wife is Brenda and we were always interested in antiques of one type or another.
Our collecting truely began with the purchase of two Farmall F-12's on our first wedding anniversary.
I can say that the custom has continued for more then twenty-five years now.
Here I"ll share with you photos and info on my flywheel engines, antique tractors, trucks and other collectables.
For the last year or so, not much has been achieved as far as restoration work goes. This was due to a minor health problem I was facing. Hopefully, that is all behind me now, with work moving ahead again at least on a few projects previously started.
|Oilfield - Engines|
|A 16 Hp. Acme Sucker Rod engine

Wood Count Museum.
|10Hp. Spang 2 Cycle

|There was an "old" repair made to the outer water jacket on the bottom surface just behind the exhaust port. This repair appeared to be OK when the restoration of the engine was done about 10 years ago. The repaired area has opened back up and will be this winters #1 project. Phots soon to come.|

|To go with the times, my "Butt Buggy" is a Hybrid.
It started life as a Taylor-Dunn parts chaser for warehouse use.
It is still driven by the original electric motor, however the
Sattley now does the re-charging of the batteries.
This picture was taken at the "2007 Fall Festival" in Luckey, Ohio.
