Further Progress with Tilly
Billings Cooke Writes:
After some problems with a few fittings leaking on both top and bottom of the boiler, I'm happy to say that Tilly now has a tight boiler with all fittings on the top and bottom installed.
With a normal operating pressure of 200 to 250 lbs/ sq.in. I'm very happy with a hydro' check of 400 to 500 lbs. in the boiler.

I think today might be the last ride of the season. I have been trying to quiet a howling 20HP baker burner down for a few month and today it seemed to cooperate. Done trying things until next season and hopefully what worked today will work then as well..

Stanley Narrow frame 30HP Rebuild
Joe Shukay writes:
Early Stanley, small frame 30HP engine we rebuilt years ago as a spare engine for the Model 85. I've helped rebuild about 10 Stanley 20-30hp engines since I started working on them. I really enjoy that.
Stanley Model 64 Rebuild
Seamus Michael Hnat writes:
I always forget to put pictures in this album. Most recently I took the 10hp engine and rear axle out of the 1913 Stanley 64. It is going up to Rempco in Cadillac, MI for a 10hp kit upgrade as well as some axle work. Wheels are going to get sent out for new spokes and fellows. I am going to start checking out some of the pumps, valves, and check valves, to make sure they are all up to snuff and get a better understanding of how they all work. I am also going to re-pipe some of the car to make it more organized. A completely mechanical car.
