This small gas engine has a bore of 2? and a stroke of 4' and no doubt less than ? hp. It has no name or patent numbers on it anywhere. It looks factory made but some parts look hand crafted. It is believed to have been used for power in a clock maker's shop in Jamestown, Missouri.

Could you give me any information on this engine?

My one cylinder Beam engine, made in March, 1930. It is equipped with a water pump and radiator. I have displayed it at the Stumptown Steam Threshers Club in New Athens, Ohio.
