I will try to post pic.... Dont know if this engine is kerosen. Any information about this motor(year manufactured etc) will be greatly appreciated.
Motor is still submerged in fresh water for preservation.Each cylinder appears to have something where a spark plug would go. there is a round brass tank Horozontally positioned, with a round glass on the bow end of it for observation of a fluid level.Just below the brass tank appears to be the exhaust manafold.
On the stern end of the motor at the topright side are 4 glass tubes positioned vertically with brass knobs.
