I picked up this engine last year, andam rebuilding it as a spare for the SupervisorsInspection Car I jointlyown.
The engine has a seized exhaust valve,which appears to be a typical problem with these motors. All of theengines I have come across, around the country, have had a similarproblem.
This engine is set up for electricstart, and has a dynamo that can (or perhaps should) throw somewherebetween 10 and 20 amps.
As well as unsticking the valve, I willreplace the main seals and gaskets. So far the motor appears to be inreasonable shape.
Typical of this size engine, this oneis "splash" lubricated. The manual I have for the S12D and AELNDindicates some were fitted with a proper oil pump.
This is an S12D, but not the one in this series of pages.
This engine is also suffering a sticky valve - needing anoverhaul!
