propeller, but after starting the setup in my crowded shop Bagaduce
will be a lot easier to work around. The engine is a Detroit-Auto
Marine single cylinder 2 stroke. The tag is gone so ageing it is a
bit of a guess but almost certainly before 1914. It is pre carburetor
and drip oiled cylinder which is the basis for that opinion. 3 1/2"
measured stroke and probably a 3" bore estimated as there is no reason
to disassemble it at this time. Runs real nice, Michigan Wheel
recommended a 14" prop which goes with the rule of thumb that it match
the flywheel in diameter. Will send pictures as we get something
besides a pile of molds to look at.
