Auction: Oil City Half breed engine Email Seller PM Seller
Views Date Posted

Description: I have this engine listed on Harrys as well. Buy it here and it will be cheaper than you paying the Ebay fees.

Here is an Oil City Boiler Works engine with a South Penn cylinder. Commonly referred to as a "Halfbreed" engine. They originally drilled the well with steam and then changed the engine over to producer gas straight from the well head, hence free fuel.

The engine rolls over and is not stuck. I can see no damage such as cracks, breaks or welds. The front of the cylinder head is very nice, it is NOT all burnt up from years of heat from the hot-tube as many are.

There some new parts with the engine, a newly cast hot tube burner, a hot tube pipe and a gas valve for same. Also included are the transfer valve, main fuel valve and the exhaust elbow. Flywheel diameter is 61", so it is not a wimp.

I can load the engine. It weighs in about 4,595#, so it could be hauled on most any decent size car trailer or larger. We can also side load it on a large or Semi type truck.

Just so we are all on the same page, this is being sold AS-IS, Where-IS. This engine is 100 ( /-) years old. Expect unforeseen problem/defects/damages or anything else you could find on a machine of the vintage. It also may be dusty or sticky!

Payment will be a deposit via Pay/Pal of $300.00, the balance to be paid prior to shipment by good funds within 10 days.

If paid for, the engine can be stored outdoors for a period of time while shipping is being arranged.
