If you are after super-detailed info on Hicks marine engines, seems you are in luck. All the original engineering drawings survive. See this, from the Online Archive of California website:
A guide to the Hicks Engine plans and marketing materials, 1918-1950
"The Hicks Engine plans and marketing materials (SAFR 17336, HDC 1092) contains mainly fabrication drawings for Hicks engines and parts, and assembly lists for Hick's engines produced between 1918 to 1950. A small number of documents include 2 offset printed illustrations of engine parts for a catalog, 5 original illustrations of engine parts on over sized boards, and photocopies of a catalog, an order form, a manual, and a price list. This collection is cataloged to the file level and is open for use with staff assistance."
The finding aid is downloadable as a pdf at http://pdf.oac.cdlib.org/pdf/maritime/safr_17336_hdc1092.pdf
