|Help Needed - Two Cylinder Inboard ID
|Posted on Saturday, February 21, 2009 - 09:35 pm: ||
This site was recomended as "The" place to have
the identity determined of an early 2 stroke inboard.
I have attached two photos of the subject.
It's not my engine, but that of a friend who has had
it wrapped up and tucked away in the corner of his
shop for many years. He has been bugging me with
"You can find it on the internet can't you?".
Hopefully he's right!!!
Thanks and regards

It is a Roberts
However it may have been sold by others including boat builders such as Mullins.
Hope this helps

Hi Ernie and Many Thanks!
You have just done what hours of searching did not.

This post should now likely be moved to a different topic, however
I thought I would pass along the results of a little further research,
in the hope that some of it might prove of use, and help repay you
and the forum for your help. I have included the following patents
filed by Edmund Willson Roberts related to these engines.
These links to the patents use the Google search, which is indeed
a great concept but falls somewhat short in its implementation.

Another view of my friend’s engine
The following link to an earlier post with a very good match.
The basic engine, and perhaps the timer appear the same,
with the carb being different.
Once again Thank You and Congratulations to the forum – an amazing resource!
