OLD INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINES

overhead belts.gif (2176 bytes)

At Confectionery Capers there are eight typical examples of older I.C. engines fully restored and operational. Today these engines are often called Farm Engines or Flywheel Engines. Seven of the engines in the building are set up so that they can individually (or in concert) drive the overhead line shafting which, in turn, drives many of the crazy machines on display. The engines are connected to the line shafting via fixed and loose pulley systems which enable the operator to engage or disengage them as required.

Click on the thumbnail photos to see the full size picture of each engine on display at Confectionery Capers.
