The Burrell 5 horse compound , single or double crank , was named by Burrells as their Devonshire type because they sold it as suitsble for the small tight lanes and small stackyards in that part of the world . It was a very useful and versatile engine which was very popular . Some 5 horse double crank engines carried a small bore 6 horse cylinder and crank and were not of the lighter design . Burrells also produced an Aberdeenshire type and an Irish type .

Hello!

A question to picture 59:
There is a pipe(?) leading from the drivers position to the upper part of the chimney. Would you please tell me for what it is used?
A simmilar "pipe" can be found on picture 64 where it looks like a support for the chimney.

Those pipes are for the sheets to sit over, so they don't drap over the cylinder block and get ripped by the safety valves or any split pins.
