I am hoping someone can come up with some information on Hummer engines. My engine is cast in one piece except for the wet head. The bottom of the main casting is open, similar to an Alamo. The engine appears well built. The engine is silver. “Hummer” appears in green stencils on both sides of the hopper. The serial number, 8283, is stamped in the head. It has a 3-7/8-inch bore and a 4-inch stroke. The crankshaft is 1-1/2 inches in diameter. I would guess it to be 1 hp. It has splash oiling for the crank end of the connecting rod with cast grease boxes for the crank lube. I would like to know who built it and when, as well as what its original color was.
