National AH1 Diesel Engines.

Post by pulsechoes » 19 Apr 2013, 18:24

Hi, As the proud owner of 2 of these little beauts, and having seen items in the Stationary Engine magazine in the past from guys in NZ
who have also got examples, I've decided to try to get a Register of owners together, hopefully with the help of Geoff Challinor from the
Anson Museum in the UK, where the National Engine records are kept.
The Serial Numbers of my two are:-
1. 1002284 (Hopper cooled)
2. 1002837 (Tank cooled ex College engine)
Thanks in advance, Charles (UK)

Well I'm still here anyway. Don't have one of those engines though. I see the forum is going through a quiet spell, as it did a few months back (just one of the joys of being in a country with so few people). I'm sure it will come alive again in the next few days.

I can't say I have seen a National here, but given there seems to be one of everything here I would bet somebody will have.

G 'day Charles,
Your National is a nice looking engine. I have never seen this model here.
I suspect they never came here, or if they did it would have only been in small numbers.
I have a friend who is new to the hobby and is only interested in the dark side. He has several Diesel engines. As you have now displayed leanings to the "dark side" of engines, if you wish I can put him in touch with him. he is a retired precision engineer and likes to restore to perfect running order.
Merv
Ps." dark side" refers to diesel engines in the UK

Hi Merv, There have been several guys from NZ and Oz who have sent photo's of AH1's in to the
SE magazine in the past, so they are out there somewhere!! Charles.
