Good luck - we don't see many R2s or R3s down here in OZ about 99% of all Stuart engines are for boating (mostly coastal) and of those about 90-95% are P55s/P66s and balance virtually all P5s part from the odd R3.
Both Peter Ogborne and I have each been lucky enough to find a Stuart genset and I have a friend who has a the Stuart pump set. Also, I only evey seen one Stuart 4 stroke twin. Only 438 ST4s were manufactured. Also, I've got a H2M diesel and I only know of a handful of others around the country - only 403 were manufactured.
If anyone else in Australia has an unusual Stuart please email me with your story as I ocassionaly write articles for teh Austrlian based Old Machinery Magazine (TOMM) - check out the discussion board on the website www.tomm.com.au
