Hello

I was on the hunt for a small diesel for my 16.5' GRP gaff seaboat and was given the petrol engine shown below. I can find no identifying marks. I would be very grateful if you could identify the make/model and point me in the direction of any further information that might help me get her back in working order.
Thanks

Rod Hughes

Isn't it amazing if two engine collectors in Perth, Australia can find each other and give assistance through a web site in the USA.... the Internet has certainly allowed for enhanced "communication"...!
Regards,
Andrew

Just wondering.,...

I was looking at this nice little motor and noticed that the water pump appears very similar to the one on my Chapman Pup.I know that the magneto and carbys were proprietary (off the shelf)items that the Australian manufacturers used (ie lucas and schebler) were the water pumps also "bolt on" units? What about pistons/rings/bearings etc?

Geoff .........I think you will find that the pumps have slight differances . They all work on the same principle but there are dimensional variations mainly brought about by the mounting flange hole centers . This is not to say that with a bit of cut and patch you could quite easly interchange some of them . Something you would have to watch for is that the stroke was compatable . In answer to your question I am sure the engine manufacturer made their own pumps ,they were such a simple casting and M/C job .

Thanks all. Steve - I'll call you at more civilised hour. My next decision will be whether this is the engine to put in the boat, replacing a 1977 Seagull Silver Century Plus outboard.

Hi Rod

Yep Mate You have a Penguin... sometimes called a Tasman. It is a highly sought after engine & you will find as have I that it will come under the Australian movable cultural heritage control list - which makes it even more desirable.

It would drive your 16' boat niceley. Looking at the pic it would be around 1960 ish not an old one but a good one.

The piston will be a very ornate cast iron number & should last the life of the motor, the rings SHOULD be obtainable at any decent engine rebuilder. I bought some for my penguin that were out of a 1948 vauxhall I think. Bearings should be whitemetal & could be remetalled fairly simply.
Dont think the Magneto is original... a bosch would have been fitted when new.
