Engine startup

After a lot of work, our Continental R-670 bursts into life.

The original Buffalo engine was beyond restoration so this one was purchased from Mississippi, USA in July 2021 and shipped to the UK. It is an original surplus LVT engine from the end of the Second World War and it’s believed that it hasn’t been run since it left the factory.

The Buffalo engine team consisting of Chris Collop, Paddy Nightingale and Tom Woodhouse worked tirelessly to get it fired up and roaring as a static display.

If anyone has a 3D printer and can make us one of these: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3652570 please let us know.
