Fowler Motor Cable PE 18600 or 18601 of 1929.
Photo’d 1991 at Faldingworth, Lincs. [Harold Clark Collection]
Members Brian Albon and John Price have confirmed the engine featured as Fowler 18600 while in the ownership of the Nicholson Brothers of Faldingworth, Lincolnshire.
At the sale of this and sister engine 18601, in October 1999, they were advertised as Diesel Ploughing Engines. The catalogue stated that Lot number 1239, engine number 18600, was right handed and fitted with a five cylinder National Gas & Oil Company engine coupled with the original Fowler transmission. The left hand motor cable engine in the auction, number 18601, was Lot 1238 and was fitted with a Deutz six cylinder engine with original Fowler transmission.
The records show 18600 and sister engine 18601 were supplied to cable Cultivating Contractors Ltd., in 1929 with 150hp petrol engines and became their No.3 Set. Both now survive in Worcestershire. It is not known when the diesel conversions took place.
Many thanks to Brian and John
