The question was asked earlier if anyone had an engine in the 3,000 or 4,000 serial number range. A post by "Foxman" in Sept. 27, 2006 states that serial numbers went from about 500 to about 1850 from 1910 to 1917. The numbers then jumped to 5000 and carried on from there. This shows up very clearly in this latest engine list.

Here are images of St Lawrence serial number 5723 - 3 1/4B x 3 1/2S, owned by Ray Prophet.

Has cast iron piston and by-pass baffles

The engine is fitted with a Witherbee Ignitor Co (WICO) "Improved High Tension Magneto type L1" - number 47456.

The magneto appears to be original factory installation.

5723 # added to the list and photos filed.
It looks as if the cylinder was recast to have the raised square boss to mount the Magneto ?

Richard,

Do you have any information about WICO L1 magnetos.

This is an early reciprocating magneto.

The magneto date may help to date the St Lawrence.

Well, we finally tracked down what I think is a real prize.

This engine originally worked on Georgian Bay not far from our place. Dad knew about the engine years ago and then lost track of it. It took a bit work to follow through 3 or 4 different owners since then, but I think it was worth it to bring it back home.
...
#5295
12 HP (4"x4.5")
2 piece rounded manifolds (with brass tag on exhaust manifold)
6 head bolts per cylinder
offset timer and waterpump with worm gear rather than bevel
17.5" flywheel
no name cast into inspection covers
separate subbase

Nice find, good looking motor, I didn't realize they made the larger size. Is that copper tube to the front cylinder a water supply? If so, did they leave out the connector between the cylinders?

You're right on the money, JB. The copper piping goes direct from the pump to the bottom of each cylinder with no connections between the two jugs. Some literature would suggest that they made one size larger than this again with a 4.5" x 5" bore and stroke.

Here is an image of Goss engine from St Lawrence 1924/25 catalogue. The serial number matches mid 1920 date and fits Richard‘s list. The crankcase may be aluminum or cast iron. Light weight versions with aluminum lower crankcase, heads, manifolds were offered in the 1911 catalogue. A three cylinder 3 1/2 bore from 1911 time period was posted in St lawrence III and reposted here.

At Last! A six bolt head two cylinder St Lawrence - Congradulations to the Goss's. By any chance are the heads aluminum?

Thanks for the info Barry.
Phil - The base, subbase and heads are not aluminum on this one. Whoever painted it up sure gave it that look though.

The scale of it is quite impressive. We set a little 3hp beside the 12hp to show the scale.

I was wondering if there is any interest in consolidating the St.Lawrence Engine Lists and putting it on the SLE website? This would enable each engine to be directly linked with its own page of photos and additional information. A sample proposal is available at

Am attaching images and information about St Lawrence Unit Power Plant that was offered mid 1920s in two sizes 3 1/2" bore as illustrated, also 4" bore. Images scanned from photos supplied by John Laing taken about 1962. These have an integral transmission and impulse magneto.

Barry,
It looks like that Unit Power Plant that you posted photos of doesn't have the magneto that is described in the catalog. Maybe they were made with either ignition to suit the customer?

Do you have a closer view of the transmission? Does it have the St.L name on the top cover plate or are they using someone elses?

Blair,

Looks like a St Lawrence model A transmission, with the housing modified for direct connection to the engine.
Looks like an owner removed the magneto and used the magneto drive to operate a rotary timer.

Hi Guys, here is another St Lawrence I have here. It is serial #7547 and I am guessing it is from the 1940's. It has 18 mm spark plug threads, the new style water pump, the baffle plate and it appears to have a aluminum piston. This one does have a few unique features: it does have a shebler carb but it's from Flint MI not Indianapolis IN and it has the inscription "No 4" clearly embossed on the head - none of my other St Lawrence engines have this, does anyone know when they started doing that? There is however no St Lawrence embossing on the crank case access covers that is normally there! Also this engine has a small brass piece that acts as a short out to the timer so it can't kick back to the starter - something else none of the others have.

What does the "brass short out" do? If it does actually short out the brush this would cause continuous firing with a buzz coil. It may be just a stop to keep the timer from going too far.

The brass piece acts as a switch in the starter solenoid circuit to ensure electric starter will only operate when ignition is retarded, thus avoiding kick back that would mangle the starter bendix. The components look to be owner add on.

Interesting that in all St Lawrence literature prior to the addition of the electric start XA and XB, recommended propellers were left hand. The electric start propellers were right hand to match the starter motor bendix.

I am contemplating the purchase of a St. Lawrence two cylinder serial #5822. The person who owns it now had not run the engine since he purchased it. As he is not sure of the horsepower what he does know is the stroke which is 3 ½ inches and thinks the bore is about 2 ½ inches. As I am planing on installing it in a launch of about 17 ft. I don’t need a huge amount of horsepower. I have a 3 hp single Gray that I could use but would like a 2 cylinder as it runs smother. Could any one fill me in on what the horsepower is and what the bore is? I haven' able to put the engine into any list.

Here is more info on the starting contact for the electric start engines. It appears that they were factory as the starting instructions for the electric start engine specifically mention this in step 2. If anyone wants the entire brochure send me an e-mail. It is a LARGE PDF.

I have been reading through the St Lawrence posts and noticed the NO 4 on the back of the cylinder. This engine is the same vintage as mine. However mine has what looks like a 4 in a circle about 1/2 inch in dia on the front of the cylinder below the water jacket. I wonder if this was to indicate the raw casting was for the big 4-6 hp engine?
I have looked at this casting mark from several directions wet and dry however...If anyone wants to suggest something else for this casting mark please do.

Something else I have noticed...
There appears to be different castings for the rear cylinder/s on multiple cylinder engines for the cooling water connection. However they must have used what was on hand because a lot of the pics show that the front cylinder on multiples and quite few singles have the boss cast on the front bottom of the water jacket the the rear cylinders on the multiples have for the water connection.

Bob Legnon and myself need to have a flywheel cast for each of our twin St. Lawrence engines. We hope to send my flywheel, which has two cracked spokes, to Cattail Foundry in PA sometime in the next month or so.

Does anyone else need a flywheel?

Another St Lawrence for the list... #5247
Twin cylinder,rotary timer,one piece manifold, no water pump in running condition. I acquired this in Kingston, Ontario in the 70's now in New Westminster, BC. I'll send pictures when I can. Anyone know the proper 1/2 npt plugs? It seems to run with anything I try...

Typical gas / oil mix is 25:1 up to 40:1 depending on who you talk to.
I use 25:1 to 30:1 to make sure there is good sealing on the piston rings.

There is an interesting head on this St.Lawrence. The pronounced 'bump' at the bottom of the head is different than any others I've seen posted here. We originally thought that it was a blacksmith band holding together an old break, but under close inspection it is all part of the one casting. Serial number as shown for your list Richard.

Hi
New member here.
I would like to buy a one cylinder St. Lawrence engine in any condition.The classifieds don't seem to be working.
There is a two cylinder engine locally for sale if anyone is interested.

Hi - what kind of engine are you trying to sell and can you provide info like how old is it, does it run, what if anything is missing etc? And some pictures would be very helpful. If you can't post the pictures send them to me and I can do that for you.
