    '40/12/8A and B: Nick Rowland and his dad are unable to identify this 12-inch flywheel, 2-1/2-inch bore and 3-inch stroke mystery engine. '

This is an engine that my dad and I have had for a while; we've been unable to find anyone with photos or another to make parts.

The engine has a 12-inch flywheel, 2-1/2-inch bore and 3-inch stroke. It is missing the crank guard casting, governor, ignition and carburetor. At one time someone has fitted lawn-mower gears and a cam to it. The engine is tank-cooled with a cast gas tank in the base.
