All I know is that this type of engine was used in gillnetting boats around 1913-1920. Please help me ID the engine and any description that could be used on a permanent display. Thank you !

Can anyone help ID this engine?

Was this engine pulled out of the Columbia by a dredge?

Regardless, it needs immediate conservation or it will turn into a pile of junk. Electrolysis is the way to go. Information on how to do it is posted on this forum.

Well,I see my response did not post! I tried to contact the man who donated it, but not call back. I assume, by the condition, it was underwater. Sadly, I know of no one in our area who is going to take on restoring this engine.

I agree if it has spent much time (ie years) in saltwater the sulphides that migrates into the iron will continue to turn it into a pile of iron oxide. Paint and/or oil have no effect as this occurs from inside the iron. As suggested electrlysis seems to be the most effective if not the only way to prevent this. Noel Hilliam at Dargaville maritime museum in Northland, New Zealand has done a lot of this work, so is one person, whom I know of, that is familiar with the process. However there will be others all around the world and much nearer to you, trick is to find them, (Noel would be a starting point).
These engines are very rare and sought after in New Zealand so it would be a real shame to loose such a complete example.

Good luck in your endeavours darrylovens@infogen.net.nz
