The Stables Housing Horse Power || J.A.P Engines

By L&S Engineers 4 years ago 1904 Views No comments













J. A Prestwich Industries (JAP), was an English manufacturing company founded in 1895. Alongside Villiers and Lister Petter they were a landmark in British Engineering . They began manufacturing aircraft, motorcar, and stationary engines. JAP engines can still be seen around the country at vintage rallies, with people still staying loyal to them building up there own vintage engine collection. This week we have an article from J.A Prestwich Industries LTD themselves. The article below is taken from J.A.P's handbook. In it's prime the J.A.P works was described as "the stables housing horse power, with quality and efficiency" an apt name for a company that continued to manufacture through two world wars!

If you're interested in seeing the whole booklet just let us know! Did you know we sell JAP some vintage industrial engine spares? Why not check it out, you may find something you need in our Vintage Engine Spares section.

This week we have a vintage Villiers booklet, from the Villiers Engineering Co. on Martson Road Wolverhampton. To quote the book 'in the following pages are described some of the models in the Villiers range used largely for agricultural and dairy purposes.' As you may have seen from our previous blog Villiers had and still does have a big influence on the business! So we thought we'd share a few of the engines specifications by Villiers themselves. Make sure to check our our range of Vintage Engine Spares! We have Villiers, Jap & Lister Petter!
