We have an upcoming auction and I ran across these Palmer engines and was looking for a little help identifying them.
Thanks in advanced

The three cylinder is a Palmer ZR-3. Note the last two digits of the serial number are the year it was made. Missing the center hex plug used to set the valve timing. Not for spark plug. Won't hurt anything just missing the correct plug. Red Palmer is ZR-1 post 1938 with 3 bolt exhaust manifold.
Green one cannot read the raised lettering on lower cylinder skirt. No serial number tag so don't know the date.

Palmer PNR 1 running
Note this engine IS running counter clockwise
It is the old buggy wheel thing with the camera that makes it look like it is running clockwise
Here are the specs for the ZR and PNR. The PNR is a ZR with a smaller bore and no counterweight on the crankshaft.
