This is an outstanding original example or a two-cylinder Locomobile steam engine for an early horseless carriage. It is in excellent condition with no cracks, breaks or repairs that I can see or know of. It appears to have been mechanically restored by a previous owner who was an industrial engineer and very talented machinist. Everything on it is nice and tight as it should.It turns over smoothly and everything interacts just as it should. It runs very nicely on compressed air as I've run it personally. It has the serial number 3893 stamped on it near the crankshaft. It also has "Creetors" stamped in a few places but this is incorrect as it is a Locomobile. As it's original application is a horizontal engine it measures about 12 1/2 x 26 x 10 inches tall. The previous owner was obsessed with Cretors engines enough that he stamped this engine to be one, too, but didn't even spell it correctly.
This could be removed is you so choose. This engine has the original water pump on it as can be seen. It has a brass/bronze frame and displays very nicely! This is by far the nicest original Locomobile that I have seen come to market in many years and would be a fine addition to your early steam engine display or collection or an even better addition to your Locomobile car to complete a restoration! All of the rebuild work seems to have been done!
The stand that it is on does not go with the engine (not included in the sale). The pictures tell the story.
You won't be disappointed! I can deliver this for free (or a cold beverage) to LeSueur, MN, Baraboo, WI, Portland, IN, or Coolspring, PA, next year.
