Hi had some issue posting this so I hope its not in the system twice, this stationary engine is a Garrett, I believe the last one in existence. 
It is fully operational and is located in Westernport Victoria (Australia), the engine was restored by the men and woman of the RAN over a number of years.  Unfortunately its not open for the general public to view, however it is on show once a year on the open days.
I have some other pictures if any body would like to view them
Cheers
Richard

Hi Richard, thank's for the photo's, the Garrett engines are a particular favourite of mine, we share the same name, they were built at Leiston in Suffolk here in the UK, where there is a museum called the Long Shop that is for their products.  The engine in your post over here we call a portable engine, they were used for providing power to agricultural equipment etc, usually hired from a contractor, they would move from farm to farm towed by horses along with the threshing machines and operators.

Cheer's, Pete Garrett.

If I'm correct, the AE1 and AE2 were submarines...?? The AE2 being the sub that got through the Dardanelles...

Cheers, Gary.
