This is a photo of an engine I have and the nameplate is missing. It has a 3? inch bore by 5 inch stroke. The head, valve chambers, water-hopper, cylinder and crank-case are all cast in one unit. It has no rocker arm. The exhaust valve works in the side of the block. Has 1% face x 17 inch flywheels, fly weight governor No. 240069 stamped in top of water-hopper, make and break igniter with Sumpter Magneto. Muffler is missing. Can anyone tell me the name of the engine?
