"New" Peerless Discovered! in Peerless Posted September 26, 2011 · Edited September 26, 2011 by Silverghost (see edit history) I talked to Temple Baldwin, the Peerless 60 Six restorer, several times late last week, and he did not seem to wish to talk at all about ANY possible ideas to find, & eventually rig, a replacement powerplant to this old ancient sawmill. As I have stated this is the mill owner's #1 concern before letting this Peerless engine go to anyone.Temple Baldwin the restorer said also said that he had a fellow "Greg Cohen", an "engine expert", that was supposed to contact me about inspecting this engine late last week for Temple. Greg in fact called me at almost 11:00 PM while I was already sleeping , and left a 15 second message that he had cellphone battery troubles & would call me the very next day when he would in fact be passing through my PA area on his way home to Washington DC from a trek to Indiana. He wanted to inspect the engine for Temple Baldwin sometime the very next day. He left me NO contact phone number & no way at all to contact him however ? I waited around the house all day & night the next day and he NEVER called me back. I just wasted my entire day & evening sitting around waiting for him to contact me ! I also later, the next day, contacted Temple who said that this fellow in fact passed through my area yesterday at 3:00 PM but "Greg" never bothered to call me back again ??? And remember~I had NO way at all to contact him. A missed opportunity~ I then offered to take photos & measure this engine for Temple myself on Sunday to help get a positive ID on it if he supplied additional info on exactly what to measure & look for, and what exactly to photograph; ie: casting numbers, model & serial number plate series etc. Now~ I am NOT a Peerless engine expert but would do my best to help him ID the engine since he lives such a long distance away from PA in Idaho. Temple never contacted me back on Sunday yesterday with any additional info that I could use myself to help HIM ID this Peerless engine as he had stated he would in fact do. At this time, because of all of the issues above, I will now "Bow-Out" as acting middleman and let these two guys sort this all out directly themselves. I have given Temple Baldwin's contact phone numbers to the old sawmill's owner. From all of this I must assume that there is no real interest in making any deal here for this engine on the sawmill owner's terms of finding him, & setting-up, a new replacement sawmill powerplant . It would appear there IS however interest in the Peerless engine itself on the part of the restorer.But NOT providing a new powerplant as this sawmill owner had wanted all along.Also~~ No interest in any talk on the restorer's part of providing any ideas for a possible replacement powerplant. I will now let these two fellows sort this all out themselves~~~I feel I have now done my part to try to save this historic Peerless engine~~~The rest is entirely up to them now.I will now sit this one out on the sidelines !
