In such instances the prefix letter “E” would appear after the model letter i.e. The model “F” engine differed from the general specification in that it was fitted with an enclosed crankcase, allowing an oil bath lubrication system to be used.
During this early period, engines were equipped with continuous hot tube ignition, with the tubes made of porcelain.
For industrial applications a range of tandem gas engines were made available, and by 1912, these had appeared in sizes from 300 to 1, 500bhp.
Of these smaller models had overhung cylinders, while the larger models employed a girder-bed with cylinder support.While The National Gas Engine Company found production moving towards the larger industrial type engines, they did not forget the needs of the small power-user, for in 1906, the “K” Type range of horizontal petrol engines was introduced.Offered in five sizes from 2 to 9 bhp, these engines were equipped with electric ignition in the form of a low-tension magneto and igniter.Thos early engines were well received, to the extent that within a short period engines were being produced in a wide range of sizes from 2hp to 160hp.It should be noted that power ratings were quoted for operation on good quality coal gas.Regards patrick ----- Original Message ----- From: Andy Selfe To: Patrick Knight Sent: Sunday, August 14, 2005 PM Subject: Pix of Daimler Industrial Diesel Hello Patrick, Just back from the show, here are the pictures of the Daimler Industrial, which I suspect is a Uniporn with the name ground off and a brass plate riveted over it.
