Great write up Richard
I forgot the little LE is a side valve motor
looking forward to more pictures of the oily bits

Not sure about the valve spring removal tool.
I do have an automotive spring comp with different heads if you get stuck

Nutating disc engines, what could be simpler?

Post by NVNL » Wed Feb 03, 2016 6:44 am

The Peakland Heritage website says that locals used the name Romping Lion ‘because the engines were powerful and extremely noisy’.


One was at a flax mill at Two Dales powered by moorland run-off water held in reservoirs constructed on the hillside above the factory and piped down to the engine. The other was upstream of this bridge and used the river water to drive an engine to drain lead mine workings.

So, if you’re quite across the detail of the nutating disc engine read the second part of our Peak District Correspondent’s e-mail will be quite within your compass, please read on.

If, like me, you’ve realised that in certain areas of life you can’t tell a wadi from a pond, relax like me, humbled in awe, abandon vanity and enjoy the pictures.

Here is part two of David’s story -

We have rain, we have mud, we have run-off.

Be like us, get muddy.
