 click images

Fully Functional Wood burning home-built steam traction engine. Powered by 3"X 4" up right steam engine with fly wheel governor and displacement lubricator. Ford truck transmission with 4 speeds forward and 1 speed reverse. Jeep differential and band type brake. Fire tube boiler with 3/4" flues- Nat. B.D.-1102. Made by McKenna Boiler Works Inc. Los Angeles, California 17336-50, H.S. 20, W.P.-100, MFG S. 1102 in 1948.

Boiler water chamber is 16" diameter and 28" high, without fire box or smoke hood and stack. Boiler is equipped with an adjustable antique brass pressure relief valve, a Penberthy size 00 injector, a steam gauge, water site glass and steam whistle(3" diameter X 13" high).

I burn wood as fuel and operate on 65 to 90 psi steam pressure. I performed a hydro static test to 130 psi each year and used distilled water to make steam. This is relatively cheap and prevents boiler scale build-up.

 $4,200.  Buyer responsible for pick up. Located in Olanta, PA.      SOLD  .
