1971 Morris Pick-up "Windrush".
As first seen after being stored in a barn for a few years.
Seen here after the bodywork has had all the scratches and dings removed. and a lot of cleaning, new
tyres, and brakes overhauled.
An interesting engine, using the original crankcase, crankshaft modified to suit, pistons changed to cast iron
trunk giudes, four 2" steam cylinders, single acting, with poppet valves, mounted above, the unit nearest is a
twin cylinder water pump.
After many hour trying to work out all the electrics and controls which were all disconnected
we finally have a fire which is under control, next job is to sort out the very low fuel pressure.

Seen here the eletrical control unit which uses the Doble system of Quarts rods, The heat operates the switches
controlling the solenoid valves, these in turn control the water and intensity of the fire.
And here on the left the two solenoid gas valves, with the solenoid fuel valve on the right used to act as a servo
to control the water pump bypass which operates at 1000psi.
