I believe this is one of the blocks made by US Marine that used the Briggs & Stratton model B internals. I would venture to say it is also water cooled, but I have seen 1 air cooled unit. I collect Briggs, so if it comes on the market let me know

Its not water cooled, from what i been told its comprised of briggs overstock engines and or parts. The oil pan is us motors with larger capacities. bm1 is the direct drive model. They put reverse gears and in-out boxes on them too. They will have different model designations.
Here's a post about the one i picked up awhile back.

I have a United States Motor Corp, Oshkosh, WI model AM-1, serial # 91584.
Does anyone have any idea when this engine was built and would it have the Brigg's block and internals?

Those United States Motors water cooled engines are VERY hard to find and sought by Briggs collectors.
My Briggs Model A first of 3 Illustrated Parts Lists (IPLs) shows several models including models AM (M for marine) and MT. Are you sure it is a model AM-1? Or Maybe that is from the US Motors tag.I have 3 IPLs and only the first one, for 5 digit type numbers on a Briggs tag, shows an available "Marine transmission ass'y". The other two, 6 digit models, show no Marine parts available. Not to say they were not.
That serial number would date it to June of 1935 IF it is on a Briggs engine tag. I believe most US Motors marine engines did not have the Briggs tag on the engine.
Could you put on a pic of the carburetor as it changed from the 5 to 6 digit types of the Model A and is unique to the 5 digit, early, A models including models AM and MT engines.
I understand that Briggs made the castings and US Motors assembled them.
To search ...smokstak.com .. as noted last post above.
