I moved this message from the "One and Two Cylinder" catagory here to the "Kermath" catagory:

quote:

I have an early 20's launch with a Kermath 2cyl gas engine.

The model # is 8-10 and the serial # is 19881.

I am looking for help in locating any specs, manuals or info about just what this engine is.

Hope somebody can help. Can send pic's if that would help.

Hi guys,
I have the same motor. I just bought a 1942 life boat with this motor and could really use the same tech. information. I got the motor running without to much problem but still need some information about the old girl, BTW any idea when these motors were made?
