Recently I've run across a few 'older' small single cylinder engines that I'm not having much luck in identifying.

This first one was removed from a 1993 Quarter Midget.

So far, about all I know is the obvious. It's a 4-stroke single with a direct drive gear reduction box which I believe is a 6 to 1 ratio.


This next engine is a 2-stroke that I believe may be some variation of a West Bend.  Neither of these engines have any markings other than some numbers here & there that are either cast or stamped. The only wording or letters that I've located so far, are located on the flywheel & only identify the electrical system.

I have recently located a blower housing that fits this engine. It doesn't appear to have any markings on it either. Undecided

Now here's one of my favorites.  Grin

Anyone happen to know what this engine was originally intended for?  Wink

Which one are you referring to?

Top? Middle? Or bottom engine?

The engines in the middle & bottom are both 2-strokes. I do not think any of these engines pictured, were ever used in a snowmobile, but I could be wrong. The one in the middle seems to be the one that has most everyone scratching their heads.

The bottom one originally powered an item that is very common today in most every home. I believe they were all originally painted a medium dark green. Not John Deere green.

Sorry, I was referring to the top (red) one.

Common item in household?  Must be a Maytag washing machine motor?

That is correct. The red engine in the bottom pics is a Maytag Model #92 washing machine engine.

Here are a few of videos of them in action.  Grin

Well so far engine #1 is supposed to be a Continental & engine #2 looks to be an early Homelite.  Cool

Still seeking more info.

Those old hit and miss governors are cool.

I like the video where the guy loaded the engine so it ran properly instead of bumping the gov all the time.
Pretty smooth for a single cylinder 2 stroke, especially for a 70+ year old engine.
