I have aa 4 mamod single, a wilesco single and a wilesco work stall that has several machines powered by belts off the steam engine.

I'm not a "collector" I bought them at flea markets for 50 to a 100. Thought they were cool and all them were rescues. Mistreated and needed work. Soldering tbose little tubes on one teaches a man patience. On the plus side the parts are available.

We get them out sometimes and get them going.

The mamod I use drygas in the tray. Those are dangerous. You can't see the flame clearly and its easy to spill then its on fire and you can't see it.

The wilesco use the little bricks. Esbit. Much safer!!!

The steam and boiling water add another fun factor.

I just noticed the video. My mamods are similar to yours. They have the same appearing boiler but have a bigger base and the flywheel and piston are mounted seperate from the boiler and they have a lever that lets it run forward or in reverse.

Look like this one
