I would like some info. on a United States Marine Engine,Model OK-4,Serial 81799.It is a four-cycle,battery ignition,single cylinder engine.The ID plate on the gearbox states "United States Motors Corp.,Oshkosh,WI." Is there a relation to the Universal Motor Co.,also made in Oshkosh? Any assistance will be truly appreciated.

Does it look something like this...?
I have seen quite a few of them. I think there is one at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, MD. They are mentioned in the appendix of Stan Grayson's book:
United States Motor Corp.
Trade name: US Falcon
Note: Formed in Sept. 1927 to take over Universal Products Co., makers of the Doman
I don't have any catalog info on them... anyone else that could help Mike...?

Andrew,it looks like I may not have the correct carburetor for my engine. The carb. on my engine appears to be a die-cast aluminum carb.Since I just aquired the engine only days ago, I haven't really had the chance to do much with it. It's stuck, so I'm soaking it with lots of Kroil!

I have three of these engines. One marked Sears Motorgo indicating they sold it under their trade name. two Marked US Motors, Falcon. I have seen one with clearly an original name plate marked Bridgport. Why I don't know but apparently marketed by them under their name but again made by US Motors. That long exhaust pipe could easily crack the intake/ exhaust manifold.

Could someone tell me what these engines might be worth?

It is very difficult to put a value on those engines... much depends upon condition and completeness. Do a search of the board using the search world "value" with the keyword seach link on the left, and then read some of the discussion about engine values.
Hope that helps.
