Ken:Reading the Nov 2001 issue of Gas Engine magazine, on page 16 is an article on this engine.
built some time in 1930's by The Fire Equipment Division of Pacific Marine Supply Co. Seattle, Wash. Apparentaly built from two Johnson outboard,water cooled, opposed two cyclinder engines, on a portable base directly driving a
pump.

Here Is the Information and picture of the Pacific Marine Pump.
I have two of them. Never tried to run them. Don't know the fuel mix or the spark adjustment lever settings. One will fire on both cylinders & one will fire on one cylinder (bad wire)

I HAVE ONE BUT DON`T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT IT YET
LOOKS LIKE A PORTABLE TWO MAN EXTINGUISHER FOR
SHIPS. AS FAR AS I KNOW MOST OLDER ENGINES USED
A 20 TO 1 MIX.

CORRECTION ON OIL MIXTURE,I BELIEVE IT WAS 16 TO 1
OR 1 QT TO 6 GALS. 30 WT. OUTBOARD OIL,I`M NOT
SURE BUT I THINK YOU CAN USE 50 TO 1 BUT USE THE
OLD RATIO. I BELEVE THE DIFFERENCE IS BABBIT
BEARINGS VERSES ROLLERS

For the old time slow speed 2 strokes the correct mix is 40:1 SAE #30 non detergent. One pint to five gallons of regular gasoline. Don't use modern two stroke oil as it is intended for much higher swept piston speeds and higher temperatures such in weed wackers and chain saws. Modern two stroke outboards were designed to work with 50:l. Using modern two stroke oil in the old timers won't hurt but it will make a much bigger mess as the oil just passes through the basically cold engine and out the exhaust pipe. Won't win you any friends at engine shows or with the coast guard when you leave a big oil slick in your wake. The selection of 40:1 took place about 1910 as it provided good lubrication for cold running engines and most of the oil burned in the combustion chamber and not a lot went down the exhaust pipe. The heavy use two stroke engines tended to be cleaned once a season because of combustion chamber carbon build up. It is my opinion and only that that the pumpers mentioned above operate cold as their cooling water comes from the pump and therefore I would avoid mixtures less than 30 to 40 to 1. 16:1 is the classic Maytag washing machine air cooled mixture. It produces huge clouds of oil smoke and a lot of carbon build up in the cylinder head in these air cooled high temp engines.

Out board Marine (Lawnboy) had the mixture on the cans. I have one @ my computer that is about 35 to 40 years old. It states 1/2 pint to each gallon (16 - 1). Latter they went to 1/2 pint to 2 gallons (32 - 1). It is a MS service 30 weight oil. Made in Galesburg Ill. Now this was intended for air cooled engines not water cooled. Later on Lawnboy went to a parasyn oil and different mixture. I also have several cans of "Special Formula" that reduces deposits & extends engine life that is 40 weight oil from the same era (16 - 1).

Hi, I am from Australia, and own one of these pump/engines. Does anyone have a service manual for one of these? If anyone could either do a copy, or sell one to us I would be happy to pay for it. Regards, Tim}

Roger, I sold one plug to a guy last week for $15. He wants the rest of them for $15 each. I'm not sure what the rest of the box is worth...so, I guess, best offer.

I have one of these pumps and there is a chamber when looking at the motor on righthand side (there's a bracket inside the chamber). Does anyone know what goes in there? I have not run the pump yet but plan too in the near future. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Regarding the Oil/Water ratio, I found this in the Nov 2001 Gas Engine Magazine article referenced above. It applies specifically to the FOUR-cylinder Pacific Marine Supply engine in the article:

Starting and Oiling Instructions for Pacific Marine:
Fill tank with a mixture of gasoline and oil. Zerolene No. 5, manufactured by the Standard Oil Co. of California, or Gargoyle Mobile Oil A. One-half pint oil to a gallon of gasoline. Shake well before pouring - for the first 20 hours of running a new engine use three-quarters pint of oil to a gallon of gasoline.

The entire article can be found online here:
