A museum I was working at at the time acquired the engine as a spare for their Heisler.

I was in Chester SC yesterday and found this Sinclair fuel tank. I was like .. WOW!! The support is relatively delicate .. I suppose that's because gasoline is lighter then oil. Anyone know what the 'HC' stands for?

Google to the rescue! HC stands for "Houston Concentrate", according to this site:

G'day all,

was at the Museum für Arbeit (Museum of Work) today, taking some photos of a clamshell supporting Frithjof's project and came across this piece of an old barge ... and found it too most photogenic - liked especially the various shades of rust ...



Cheers

Saw a lot of motorized wheel barrows doing commercial pool work back in the 60's. They were mostly full yard cap. instead of the 1/3 yard piece you show. Very awkward full of conc.

I've heard of "Ape Hangers" and "Monkey Bars" on motorcycles....but that is one awkward strech and grip when you're sitting in the bucket/bin.

That must leave two awesome spark trails as it scoots down the road.

I figure it's only a matter of time before there's a racing league for motorized wheel barrows... probably a division of NASCAR. Get a bunch of rednecks in roller blades driving the things. They could get sponsors like Scott's Turf Builder, John Deere and various fertilizer or manure companies -  "Proudly sponsored by Bubba's Manure Spreaders because frankly, we give a sh*t", "Manure Happens"... that sort of thing. Could even tie it in with the 2012 North American Manure Expo...

The locomotive was built by the Portland Company here in Portland, ME. The Maine Historical Society has a lot of the companies record, drawings etc. It would be interesting to
see if they have any drawings etc. of it.
