Leffell style turbine

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps [?]

This is the cast iron thrust bearing with its whitemetal bearing surfaces. It's definitely a Leffell design and distinctive, but whether it is a Leffell machine or a copy I cannot be sure. Oamaru had a number of very good engineering foundries but the biggest and most diverse (which I would say built this if it is a locally built machine) was recently acquired by another company and many records and casting patterns summarily dumped!
