In another thread, I supplied this information about the engine shown on my post. It was suggested a new thread for general access.
It is an Orient (not made in China!) taken from a Jan. 1909 Australian Motorist magazine advertisement for Charles S Dean, Orient Motor Works, Beach Rd., Mentone, Victoria, Australia. The caption reads "12 H.P. marine engine, with enclosed type reverse gear."
Further: "Marine engines built for all classes of launches. Suppliers to the Victorian Government, Ports & Harbours and Health Departments, Diamond Drill Co etc."
Two other things listed: "Specially designed stationary engines for station and farm work."and "Catalogues post free". How I often wish for a time machine!!
Well, now you know as much about Orient engines as I do. I have never found another reference. Anyone with more information please?
