My dad always talked about the one cylinder inboard motors on the fishing boats when he was a kid. I am a writer and want to mention this in a book. The problem is that I don't understand how the engines worked. Is it possible for a one-cylinder engine to be a two-stroke engine? Or are the terms exclusive? Also is one or the other more likely to be in a boat fishing Virginia waters (river or bay), circa 1920?

Both two stroke and four stroke engines were available at that time. Either were offered as one cylinder or multiple cylinder engines. Two strokes were common because they had fewer moving parts and were usually lower priced. The two stokes were often called putt putts because of their distinctive sound

I've attached a JPEG of a United States Motors Corp marine engine I have from Oshkosh, Wisc., model number AM-1, Serial Number 93407. Is there some way of obtaining further information on this engine (e.g. date of manufacture)?

It's a briggs stratton model a, built in 1943 by U.S. Motors using surplus briggs stratton parts. It has a post war gastank bracket. It should have a castiron bracket. Its missing the zenith flame arrestor too. I have a collection of aircooled inboard engines.
If its 4 sale call 508 333 9336

In my old boat I have a 2 cylinder engine Made by a Danish company. Called a Hundestead. Although most parts are still evadable from the manufacture I still need to find some. I also hope to find an engineer with some first hand knowledge of this Motor. All my family and friends say I should replace it with a more modern engine. I plan to restore this one.
