1949 Samofa 2S108

Samofa 2S108 - Year of Manufacture circa 1949

Samofa 2S108, 25hp @ 1250rpm. As many of you are aware here at MPS we have restored a lot of Gardner LWs and their Kromhout first cousins the LW and LS engines. There is also a second cousin in the form of the Samofa 1S-108 and 2S-108 engines built between 1948 and 1967. They have lots of Gardner parts inside!.  Revered in The Netherlands in the same way we covet Gardner 2LWs and Lister JP2s these solidly built engines make a refreshing alternative at an affordable price.

1959 Dorman 3LB

Dorman 3LB - Year of Manufacture 1959

Dorman 3LB. 47hp @ 1500rpm. This engine was completed with 24v electric start, twin alternators and PRM750C 1.5:1 ratio gearbox. Originally powering a Jones crane this engine was converted to marine specification to be fitted into a narrowboat.

Although a less sought after traditional narrowboat engine these Dorman's are probably the best sounding of all the engines we do, with its long stroke each firing stroke is well defined and gives that sound that will get passers by asking what engine it is.
