I have just procured a Palmer 2-cylinder, 2-cycle marine make-and-break, and according to the tag it is a Model U2. The year is supposed to be 1903, but I have not been able to confirm the year or model in any literature. I'm ready to take this engine apart, but prior knowledge and previous experience can save numerous heartaches, not to mention engines. Any information would be greatly appreciated. John Farrar, P.O.
