Gas Engine Restoration (Book) AUD $39.95

A practical guide for beginners and experienced collectors.

For the first time, a detailed step-by-step guide to stationary gas engine restoration has been written for engine enthusiasts.  From start to finish, Rooke's easy-to-follow narrative will impress and educate both new and experienced hobbyists with exhaustive coverage of the process.  Rooke meticulously leads you from stripping an engine through rebuilding each component - from bearings to cylinder heads to ignition - including tips on everything from repairing damaged threads to removing rust and zinc plating. 

Gas Engine Restoration includes chapters on rebuilding engine carts as well as painting engines, whether applying new paint or preserving old finishes.  Included are data tables containing reference information such as various bolt head and nut sizes, copper wire sizes and bearing tolerances.

The book has a soft cover and a convenient lay-flat spiral binding that allows you to keep your hands at work while you follow along.


About the author:
Living in a semi-rural community in the United Kingdom with farming neighbors led Peter Rooke to consider restoring an antique gas engine.  His first restoration was an Amanco acquired in 2003.  Early retirement allowed Rooke to spend more time in his workshop when the bank where he worked closed.  With no formal engineering training Rooke has had to learn by making mistakes and seeking advice from various people.

Having read a restoration story in the U.K.'s Stationary Engine Magazine, Rooke decided to try his hand at writing articles and a chance comment from a friend prompted him to send it to Gas Engine Magazine, where the Amanco series was published starting in January 2006.  The enthusiastic response and number of messages from Gas Engine Magazine readers prompted Rooke to write further articles and he is now a regular contributor.
