    I bought this engine at a garage sale. I have no idea who made it, there are no markings at all. I was told it was for an airplane although it has a flywheel. It's about 4 1/2" tall (not including AC sparkplug), Cyl. screws on to case, piston has 2 rings, intake screws onto back of case. I only would like to know what it is, and year it was made. I'm guessing 1930's.

      Very nice engine . Usually an engine with a flywheel is used in marine applications. This engine appears to be hand made. Google search model boat or airplane engines for some help. Could we see another shot , this time the drive side of the flywheel?
    2. Lippy55, 7 years ago
      Yes I can. The flywheel measures 3" across, height (including spark plug)5.75", intake diameter: .5", spark plug: AC

      I have found out more info, it seems the engine was built by the Brown Model Airplane Company in the early 1930's.

      I guess I was mistaken, some say it isn't a Brown, others do. So I'm back to the begining, still have no idea the builder.
