It seems like nobody in Sweden can help me identify this engine. I think it is an American engine due to the wilco ignition system.

Here: http://web.telia.com/~u22308286/ i have a small homesite with pictures.

I think it's a Caile.
Richard isn't this like the one BJ had a Calvert?
Hope this helps

I think Ernie is right. It even looks like the plate says "Prefection Motor Co"... (Caille Perfection Motor Co).

The one shown below is the "heavy duty", but you get the idea...

Ernie

It does look like the same Caille we saw at Calvert. That was the first one I had seen with the Wico Igniter mounted on it, pretty nice little Marine engine!
