The engine was made by Stover as a DV2. I think they sold them to a lot of other companies. Dick Day has one with no name on it. They are a nice running little engine. There is some info on page 495 of the big yellow book.
Be carefull if you take the mag cover off (dist cap)the rotor has to be timed and there may not be any marks. I found out the hard way on one of these years ago.

The "Big Yellow Book" is also the "Big Red Book"
It's actual title is American Gasoline Engines since 1872 by CH Wendel. Now out of print. However they do show up on eBAY. Be forwarned they con't go cheap. 150.00 plus.

Ernie, American Gasoline Engines Since 1872 is being reprinted in limited numbers according to the author, C. H. Wendel. He has apparently reacquired the rights to that book. The price is $50 ppd. Inquire of C.H. Wendel, Prairie Press, 4415 F St., Amana, IA 52203. His ad for this reissue of the Big Yellow Book says it will be published in the original yellow hard cover. The ad appears in the September 05 issue of Gas Engine Magazine, Page 52, right column.

Thats good. It should assist the newbies in the old engine hobby. I have mine and my dads so I don't need any more of them.
Have a good one

More Regal Pics from Bob Long oblong35@comcast.net
Bob is wondering what the little skew cut gear on the end of the cam might have been for. Then straight cut gear was for a chain drive water pump. See pic above
Also if anyone has any parts for one of these please let him know
