I have been searching for a one inch scale Maxitrak Burrell agricultural engine for quite some time. Fifty engines were built and it has been long out of production.
Recently I was fortunate enough to acquire an immaculate, one previous owner unfired engine, built in 2006-















Needless to say I will fire the engine and post a video in due course.

What a beauty. I think it's a real shame that someone buys such a thing and never fires it though. Glad you're going to put that right.

Wow you are a lucky chap.  How anyone can get something like that and not run it is beyond me.  I am glad to hear you are going to put that right.  Your waiting for one paid dividends - nothing beats the very first run of an engine.  Well done!
