Things may appear a bit different as problems with the visibility of the menus have required me to republish the whole site with a new template. Hope you find this better.

ADVERTS

Just been through and added a few old Stuart adverts across the website.
In case you didn't realise it Stuart didn't only make steam engines and water pumps they also did a few things for the war effort. So I have dropped a few interesting ones onto random pages to see if anyone can find them all..

Added Stuart D10
added the stuart D10 twin 10v engine. LINK

NO. 10V

Added Stuart No.10v
Added a new page for the No.10v engine. Interestingly both the 10v & 10h were advertised on a single page so I have duplicated this at the beginning of both pages. I have also included the design changes from the original release to the current design.
10h coming shortly. LINK

I can't find video of an original style 10v running so if you can help please contact me.

FUNDING

Donations.
I am constantly trying to increase my Knowledge base, this often involves purchasing catalogues, brochures Simec Magazines etc…
Funding for this and upkeep of the web site all costs money.
Whilst I have no intention of charging for the use of this website it has been suggested that I allow donations.
So if you want to make a contribution no matter how small (or large) you can by donating via PayPal.

My account name is;
subsunkuk@gmail.com.

If I get any contributor I will setup a Contributor page.

EVOLVING DESIGNS

Evolving Design.

Just added two pages Evolution V & Evolution H, these cover how the Numbered engines evolved over the years.
The description about engine direction is duplicated on both pages but the rest is unique.

Also added extra info to No.4 & No.8 engine guides.

INFO REQUEST

Information
I am constantly looking for information.
Trying to track down information such as the release dates of engines is difficult, purchasing catalogues is getting expensive.
If you have any information you could contribute I would appreciate it greatly.
Useful things are pictures from catalogues, adverts, articles, in fact anything will be useful.
One thing in particular, if you have a catalogue that has the first mention of an engine, I would appreciate a photo of the page so that I can setup the detail page in similar format.
To this end I have set up a DropBox folder with public access.
You can follow the link before and copy files to the folder. Please let me know if you deposit any files on the email below.
