Hello. This my first post here. Could someone please identify these inboards and point me toward more information on them? Not pictured is a nice brass carburetor that was on the blue one. Neither have rods or pistons, but otherwise, the blue one appears to be fairly complete. Is there any chance of finding a rod and piston? If so, I'd like to see if I could get it running.

I'm into antique cars, hit and miss engines, and antique outboards, so this is a logical extension of my interests.

Thanks in advance for any help,

Hal Davis

Hal,
They are of the Detroit Style. Fair amount around, so you could get lucky. Search "Detroit" for other post. They have been talked about extensively. Ernie could step in here with more detail.

Looks like a early model Detroit and a late model Detroit. Early engine has pipe plug for crank case inspection hole. Late model has the square hole with steel plate and four bolts for crank case inspection. You might be able to build one engine from the two, maybe..
