Moriya Engine........
« on: January 11, 2016, 04:13:24 PM »
I thought you Guys might like to see this.......

A Moriya engine. Came to me in May last year, via the Cosmic Engine Supply system. 

Said to be some 20 years old, and a veteran, of "100's" of hours, showtime running.

It's in lovely condition.........




Tall, too........




I rolled up a new wick, from 200 gauge stainless mesh.........





It runs very well! Fast, silent, reliable. But, it needed to drive a fan blade.

Didn't trust myself to make one. So, I bought a 10" diameter, industrial fridge blade, and made a spinner.......




And drive boss.......




Looks a bit more purposeful, now.......




And the video.......

That's nice looking one Dave. One day I will build or buy one, they have always been one of my favorites.

   David, a great mod, looks though it was an original fan.
                                                                                       Nice job runs well.
                                                                                                                  Cheers David

Thanks, OZ.
 Yes, that's Starteddrillin, in 1967.

Manx Norton, with an HRD/ Vincent Rapide, engine.

Two front heads, ported to suit 1.312", Wal Philips Injectors. Nine to one pistons. Somerton Square (Picador?) Cam kit.

It went..... Quite well......   :bugeye:
