We have an old buoy boat that was used on the New York State Barge Canal many years ago. We are thinking about getting the old Lathrop running again. We are looking to get any and all information that we can. The engine plaque states that it is a Type 30-Std and that the Engine No. is 55-200. It is a 3 cylinder with 2 spark plugs per cylinder. It has been sitting for some time and as far as we know it was winterized correctly at some point. We are having difficulty getting it to turn over. Marvel Mystery oil in the cylinders have leaked past cylinders 2 and 3 but not 1 which looks to be at TDC.

Any info would be very appreciated. Thank you.
