Old castings

Post by Putt-putt »

Hi, I have a box of old castings looking for homes. I got these when I bought a collection of motors off eBay a few years ago, they turned out to be really nice. Two puffins, long and short shaft, a mallard And this box of castings. They look very similar To the puffin but are slightly different so not sure what model they are for. I was told the lot was from a deceased estate in Leicester which could be a link to Haley’s engineering.
I’m hoping someone may be able to identify these parts and hopefully find homes for them.
Any help appreciated
Thanks
Lyndon

I might be interested, I have a couple of mallards myself. How much are you asking? Also are they all non machined?

The castings look ready to use however I will get some detailed photos to have a look at. Not wanting money for these but to pass them on to someone who can make use of them and again help someone else

Hi, some pictures of my puffin. Rebuilt it with only a clean and a new plug cable, judging from the piston it had hardly been used.
There are some transom brackets amongst the parts I have See photos

A Puffin 75, not many of those about!

Think I've only ever seen one.

It looks like the previous owner was preparing for a visit to the Scrap man.

Not to far off from scrap man but I coated everything with oil to stop corrosion, just need a clean up !
I was surprised to find the puffin has stainless steel drive shaft, quite well made but almost no information on them besides what I found on this forum
