I used to have two of those. I still have one of the smaller ones.

Hey Guys, I worked at the site of Long Island Motor Works as a teen from 1982-1987. The motor works had pretty much shut down in the early 50's but the machine shop was mostly intact. All belt drive from the ceiling with a power unit in the back. When I was there the place was a shop restoring antique cars. The son of the guy who made these engines was still around (in his 80's then) and would make custom driveline parts for the antique cars from time to time. It was a cool old place. There was only one of the small engines in storage in one of the buildings. I ended up with most of the core boxes for casting these engines, some of which I still have. Back then with no internet, finding interested people was tough. I gave away a pickup truck load of boxes to some marine club who auctioned the whole lot for $10.

Nice pics. I had never seen one of the larger engines.

Jack

I was excited to find the posts on Long Island Motor Works. I have a single cylinder type S 1 serial #616 5HP at 1000 Rpm. The freeze out plugs have a Pat'd 4 8 12 embossed on them. Is there any way of knowing how many of these engines were made or what year they were built? The carb was really rough with corrosion and maybe not useable. The mag was butchered and battery applied across the mag points with a delco coil. One rocker was bent and I straightened it out. I removed the head and machined the seats and valves. The bore looks good and the engine should be capable of running. Typically what would this have been used in? I'd appreciate anything in the way of information you could offer. Thanks
