At the Calvert Show several years ago I took these photos of Dave and his small brass jacketed E.M.Landis marine engine.





with the mfgrs name and city you would think that to find some information about the engine would be easy but at that time I looked at my info etc and not a trace, recently while researching another subject I came across this bit of info.
Edward M.Landis was registered as a Practical Machinist in the Toledo lucas County Ohio business registry in the late 1800's up through the 1920's, and was established in a one story commercial building. In 1900 he was issued patent # 657,290 for adjustable handlebars, again in 1921 he was issued patent # 1,369,250 for what looks to be a rather sophisticated carburetor. from sparse notes he made engines to order ? he obviuosly made at least one marine engine and I wonder if any stationary types have ever showed up ? not much but shines a little light on a one of a kind ( So far ) probably nearing a hundred year Old Marine Engine !
