We have what we believe to be an "atlas" boat motor. Looks like it might be 1930's or 1940's. Acquired at a sale, it fired right up! There are no identifying marks on it other than a serial #. It is #0042436. Any info you could give us would be much appreciated. Thank you very much, Laurie

Maybe you could describe it a little further..
Is it an inboard engine or an outboard motor?
How many cylinders?
If it is an outboard, it is probably is probably a Gale made motor distributed by The Atlas Supply Company of Newark. There is brief description of it in Peter Hunn's book The Old Outboard Book.
