I received the following:


Hello, I am Robert LeCoque with the Markey Machinery Co. in Seattle, WA. I recenly came accross your website when I was looking for any information on the Viking Oil Engines that Markey produced in the teens and twenties. We recently moved from our original address after 87 years and in clearing out the building, I came upon some of the Viking engine information. I was wondering if anyone out there had ever heard of or seen a Viking Oil Engine?
These engines came in 1, 2, 3, & 4 cylinder configurations and were sold to a broad variety of marine applications. Because not all boats then had compressed air available to start one of these Vikings, Markey also produced a small gas powered air compressor consisting of two cylinders, one being the 4-stroke gas engine and the other set up as a compressor. They included the use of Ford Model-T parts for the pistons, rods, valves, carburator, and ignition. I actually own one of these and have found the original drawings for them.

I tried posting this on the discussion board for Diesel Inboards, but the photos must have been too large and it would not let me. I thought that the photos I have might be interesting to you. Feel free to e-mail me if anyone has any information on a Viking Oil Engine as I would like to find one.

Thank You,

Robert LeCoque
Markey Machinery Co., Inc.
