The Joys and Falls of Powell Engine Power

Josephine Robert’s nephew acquires a Powell engine – along with all of its quirks.

The handbook claims the engine will last 15 or 20 years with practically no repair charges. Damian’s engine is now not far off 100 years old, and as for repair charges incurred, well we can’t say, but I expect it has caused its owners a few grey hairs over the years.
