    Actually the engine is a 1904 model. Which is a much rarer and more significant engine.

    Are you blind? The one on the left is metric and the one on the right is Witworth

    Todays wrenchers have it much easier. We have a tool for everything compared to a few adjustable wrenchs like ones shown here for those mechanics of yesterday.
