      Hello, I have just stumbled across this group despite being
      interested in Westbury engines for many years. For the record I am
      a 43 year old male professional engineer. Working in Automotive
      design specialising in seating and occupant safty and I live in the
      UK. My interests are model engineering (I/C not steam) and restoring
      and riding off road Motorcycles. (I have a keen interset in Bultaco
      bikes)

      I am currently building a Westbury Kinglet engine. The motor has a
      bit of family history in that a few years ago my dad and myself had
      the sad job of clearing my late grandfathers garage. In one of the
      many boxes I found a complete set of untouched Kinglet and Seal
      castings. The castings were put to one side (as did my grandfather)
      as other projects were progressed but eventually I decided to start
      on the Kinglet. Progress has been very slow as to be honest I am
      scared stiff of making a mistake and wrecking the precious castings.
      But purhaps with some encoragement I can overcome my fear!

      I have never seen another actual Kinglet engine. I have an original
      copy of the 1938 model engineer in which the engine was described
      (thanks to Grandada) and also photocopies of the construction
      articals. Does any body have any knowledge of what dates castings
      were available for this engine?
