Hey,

If someone needs a Stuart Twin steam engine - there is one on offer on a german version of craigslist.
The text says as follows:

The owner just bought it himself some weeks ago, but didn't think that the engine would need a bigger boiler than he could possibly install into his steam boat. The pre-owner ran the engine on air only and didn't recognize some issues which needed fixing. He completely cleaned the engine and renewed all spots where steam could exit (The stuffing box for the piston rods and the slide valves, the piston rings), adjusted the timing and then let it run on steam. He replaced some of the castings with professionally manufactured brass versions.

He says he is open for fair price offers, so, if someone wants to get a cheap Stuart, here it is:

If someone wants to have a middle man for negotiations and to organize the shippment, I offer my help. In that case, just send me a message on ladnek@web.de.

The Stuart D10 is a nice little engine, and 600 Eu is a fair asking price, but it has a bore and stroke of 19mm. Best suited to model boats 1 to 1.5 metres long.

Well, thanks, that you can identify the engine as unsuitable. I thought it was a big one. You prevented a disappointed face.
