Sand blasting done, Crank case has some porosity & casting slag normal for these old engines. Crankshaft has been ground & new centrifugal lubrication ring disk machined for lower con rod journals.  All new Babbitt bearings poured for the mains & lower con rods. Cylinders have been bored & new Clevite cast iron sleeves installed. Pistons grooves faced & resized with new rings. New wrist pins & bushings for piston & upper con rods.  This engine had been worked very hard in its time most everything was worn out. However it will be better then new when my Dad and I get finished with it. More photos to come soon.

All the main parts of the engine have been rebuilt and assembled. The engine turns over really smooth & easy. A lot of attention was put into the alignment & machining of the main bearings also the alignment & machining of the connecting rod bearings. 

We are now working on the governor linkage for the air intake. New valve guides were made for the air intake manifold and valve stems were trued. The brass air intake valve lift regulator on top of the manifold had to have the center hole bushed & the pin trued. A new brass governor lever shoe had to be made the old one was worn out. Governor linkage appears to have one incorrect clevis & a few worn out holes & pins that need to be fixed also. The governor linkage & the mechanical parts on the air intake manifold must all work smooth and fairly easy in order for the engine to run correct.

I just finished machining and reproducing the muffler for the Detroit 18hp twin. I would have liked to have had an original Detroit muffler but they are more difficult to find then the engines. This is pretty much an exact copy of the original Detroit muffler including all the internal baffles & parts.

Above are a few parts that I reproduced on my lathe and mill. Governor time collar with phenolic ring and contact. The old governor time collar had a cracked keyway and appeared to be broached on a angle.   Brass part is the governor lever shoe. The old one was worn half into. I also reproduced the timer lever arm, the old lever was just a rod with a wooden handle someone put on it.

These two photos were taken by 
Peter & Rita Forbes' Engine Webpages  at the 2007 Portland Show. The engines are missing there brass name tags. The only indication that they might be DMCSC engines is the green paint.  I'm fairly sure that the engine on the left is not a Middleditch engine. Both engines have the early two peice  Peterson Automatic fuel feeder injectors manufactured Ben J. Middleditch . The engine on the left is being run by propane through the fuel reservoir.

DMCSC  (Sandow) 8 hp with late model governor system. This engine should have fuel injection and water injection system. A couple drops of water into the cylinder at each power stroke kept the engine from knocking when using kerosene. Owner: Danny Shields from Owingsville Kentucky. Danny is missing a few parts on the engine like the fuel feeder/injector, water/injector, drip oilers, can style muffler. The scan above from a original Sandow catalog shows what the missing items would look like.  If anyone can help with finding these parts so this engine can come to life once again  please e-mail us at :

DMCSC  Sandow 2.5  hp stationary engine. Notice the primer cup on the side of the fuel reservoir. This was a feature that DMCSC did on some of their later models so you could fill the fuel reservoir with gas when first starting the engine and not have to remove the cap every time.  They also put filler valve on the acorn nut on top of the reservoir. I've only seen this feature on DMCSC Sandow engines and literature.
