Semple V engine needed

Post by Steam Fit » Tue Jul 17, 2018 3:52 pm

Anybody have a Semple V marine steam engine for sale ? I would be interested in a non finished, or finished one , even plans; to fit into for my whale boat hull.
What happen to Semple ? I've stuck a dead end.

Thank
Bill

Hi Bill, I know someone with an original unmachined casting kit, as well as someone with a complete plant (vft-40 boiler and rebuilt engine). If you PM me your info I will pass it along to them.

Fred Semple died in 1998 apparently, and I've not seen any new engines for a long time. His sons were handling the business during the summer for a while...
