Goodday all I bought this eng. a few years ago & don't know much about it- it's mounted on the display rig it came with --I found the letters PARAS & 60 stamped on the back left side of the block just below the head--any other info. would be appreciated. I assume this is a marine engine as the cooling water goes through the oil pan & I don't see where a rad would hook up _ I can be told I'm wrong about this!

Hi, Larry,

What you have appears to be a combination of an Alpine Marine engine and either a later 1,724cc five-bearing engine or someone has fitted later carbs and manifold to the original 1,592cc engine.

I assume there's no engine number in the usual place you'd find one if the engine were in a car but the number on the back of the block doesn't tie up with the numbers Rootes Marine (Tilling Stevens) used on Alpine Marine engines.

Sunbeam Alpine Marine engine Parts List

There was no radiator - the header tank has a heat exchanger incorporated in it and the raw water for that first passed through the sump cooling pipes and finally entered the exhaust manifold.

I'm currently restoring a boat with the same engine.
