Some friends and I gathered at an undisclosed location to run antique engines and just fart around. First the score that my picker friend came through with. Yet another 138 found.
[50052944047_7b9dd82a7a] 
Now for some of the engines, first up a Guiberson 9 cyl radial diesel
[50052111753_4d84a43987] 
How about a cute little Cat 10?
[50052691341_96f8796d98] 
Basford stove and Lauson air cooled sharing the tailgate. Basford coffee is a long standing engine show tradition.

Bull Dog oil engine with a Cummins built Thermoil in the foreground. Both using the HVID fuel system.

A great time has been had by all and tomorrow a couple of us are headed out to a great picking spot for air cooleds and parts. E.

Wow, those engines are awesome.  Yeah, the lamp is too.  🙂

What would the radial diesel have been used for?  Also, what is HVID?

Great score of that 138, Erik, wow!
I also really like all the engine pictures; that's some really neat stuff.  I'm a life member of an organization that is all about preserving old machines and engines of yesteryear.

JimL, an HVID engine works like a diesel, firing off high compression.

Great pictures Erik! I love the Cat 10 with orchard fenders, I restored a Cat 20 years ago. Old tractors rule!

Please keep the location undisclosed as I'm sure many of us don't want to be around when you and your friends fart ................... around!
We thank you for your support in this action.

That Cat Ten is super cool.  When were those made?  Do you start it with the hand crank?  That must be a bear.

Old iron , coffee, no mud.....Looks like a great day.
Hearing an oldie wheeze a little then cough back to life is a bonus. And a challenge at times.

Congrats on the lamp!
Purty colors. Well , cept'n maybe that brown when it's on fire...

Jim, the HVID is a compression ignition as a diesel is but it works without the high pressure injection. They can be a bit fussy and hard to start especially if it is cold. The radial diesel was actually in a few planes and the Stuart M-3 tank. Quite a few were surplussed out, this one was running a water pump in the central valley of CA. It sounds really neat running. Video was taken of these running and if it hits the tube I'll post the links. Steve someday I would love to head out to one of your engine shows, I belong to an engine club/museum here but our June show was canceled. Hopefully we will be able to go ahead with our Oct. show.

A little tidbit of History here. Most people don't know that the Hindenburg ran I believe radial diesel engines or maybe a standard inline diesel engine. And I think they were made by Damlier-Benz and were reversible

Lanterns are like tools. 
You can not have too many unless your wife says so!!

Gas is what you use for washing parts diesel is for making power!

Hey Courtenay, those are not that had to hand crank. My 20 usually took about two turns to start.

A total fluke Steve, I have never run across one before. GW, grilled onions were on the menu today so there is most certainly some farting around this afternoon. It really was a great weekend. E.

There were quite a few hit and miss engines there but plenty of diesel too. L to R Yanmar clone, Onan two cylinder marine genset, Mitsubishi single, and Hallett 28VDC genset. All runners

Buda-Lanova diesel twin
[50052933787_c7a11dd020] 
I brought a little Chinese Tri Circle air cooled diesel and ended up with a big Lombardini single with a broken crankshaft. Luckily it broke on the pto side next to the seal. Still enough there for it to run. I was very tempted to bring the Onan home too but held off. E.
