I was recently given a single cylinder, two-stroke, gasoline marine engine. The engine has no manufacturer plate or common engine identification markings except for a number 5 stamped at the top of the cylinder.
I have been searching this site in an attempt to try to find a similar type engine and to my surprise I found one. I copied and pasted the picture of the similar engine.
The engine that was given to me was left in a barn for almost 30 years and because I am known in this area as a restorer of old automobile engines, the gentleman that owned this engine gave it to me to restore. All he wants in return is to see it run. Unfortunately he does not know anything about the engine except that his uncle used it in his boat.
The engine I have has no carburetor, or exhaust or ignition system. So I am hoping someone here on this board who is much more familiar with marine engines could possible point me to the manufacturer and maybe also a date/year group and I'll begin to bring this classic back to life. Thank you all for your help with my inquiry.

I received your email response, but for some reason when I responded I received a non deliverable message. So I came here. In my email back to you I said that I copied the pic from one of the Calvert MD links on the front page of the site. The pic is a great reflection of the engine I have, but mine is missing parts. I could not find where anyone gave information about the engine. So I copied the pic and posted it here in hopes that some one will know who the manufacturer of the engine is. Knowing thos will help me tremendously in locating and purchasing the right parts I need to make this engine run again.
Thank you for your response, I appreciate anything you can come up with to help me identify this engine.
Thank you, george

You might want to go and look around the area the motor was stored. The other parts may well still be there.
