All Type 'R' Royal Engines are throttling governed oil burners and hopper cooled. The above illustration represents our 8 to 18 H.P. sizes mounted on sub-base. This style of mounting is frequently required where conditions will not permit the building of a permanent foundation, or where the foundation is already down, as concrete floors, etc.

Owing to the compact construction of these hopper-cooled engines, they are well adapted to installation where the matter of floor space must be considered. No allowance need be made for additional cooling tanks, pipes, etc., as the hopper is of liberal capacity and affords, under all ordinary conditions, an ample volume of cooling water.

The substantial, uniform and pleasing design of the above engine speaks for all the different sizes of this type.
