the SV is not SEL, it reminds me of some of the odd/early mamod SV's that I made for a certain mamod collector some time ago. i will dig out my notes tomorow so even though it does not belong on this engine dont chuck it naway just yet


Thanks Kevin i was waiting for you to have a look as i know you have made so many different types of SV so if you can identify this one that would be very helpful.

Nice find Phil, you don't see many engines at boot fairs nowadays, they all seem to fine their way onto eBay

Wish I could pick up steamers at carboots or auto jumbles, go to a lot these days.

I see a mamod TE1A (rough condition) on a regular table at a local autojumble but the guy wants 150 for it, it's been on that table since February.

Thanks Pauly and it has been a long time since I last saw anything steam at a car boot so was lucky to find this one.

I guess the TE1a you mentioned will still be there next February at that price    Help
