Dont forget most of the older stationary and marine engine of this size and era had the flywheel on the non power take off end of the engine,
looking at the propshaft angle and projecting forwards the length of an engine and coupling, there is probably a bit more room at the front of the engine?
If it was an aircooled engine the flywheel would need to be ~8" dia at least to shift any air, assuming a centrifugal fan as in most aircooled engines this size.

Electric power would be nice

Hello guys.

To confirm, there is a water inlet and outlet within the stern section.
There isn't a lot of airflow available either with the lid closed, so I'm assuming its water cooled.

I'll see if I have some better images of the rear end with the lid closed when I get home later.

Nos
Can I request you split this from the original trailer thread into other or something. Ta

I am sorted for a trailer now thanks, Davybouy has access to a 'spare' SR5.4 trailer I can use.

Rather than unpick it, I've just moved the whole thread

Ta John.

It ended up going off topic a little.

Thanks to lots of help from Nos4r2 and Doggypaddle it looks like I'm definately after a Norman/Coventry Victor Midget flat twin. But it must be a water cooled version.

Any leads appreciated.

Below are some more detail pics as promised to Nos.

So the long drive is planned to get the canoe down to the NMM in Falmouth.

Sunday morning leave Clanfield North of Pompey, over to Davybuoys house in Crawley, and then meet up with his friend and Sea Scout Colleague Nick to borrow Nicks Spare SR5.4 Trailer.

Nick
Canít thank you enough for the loan of the trailer.

Then Crawley to my Mothers house near Maidenhead where Iíll spend the rest of the day carefully fitting the canoe to the trailer somehow.

Very early start Monday morning down to Taunton, where Iíll meet up with Quentin and put his canvas and plywood canoe on top of mine on the trailer.

Then off to Falmouth to drop the Canoes at The National Maritime Museum, drop Quentin back to Taunton and decide if I can make it to Crawley and back that evening with the trailer or if Iíll need to stop at home and take it back later in the week.

Monday night Ė Collapse.

Do it all in reverse in a couple of months time.

Nasher.

If it would help you to leave the trailer down here I've got space.

Hi, thats a very kind offer, however as its not mine and the time frame isn't set in stone, I'd rather get it back to its owner.

Thanks anyway.

Nasher.

Davybouys mate is a Sea Cadet not a Sea SCOUT! But I'll accept the insult as your a mate of Daves.

Incidentally the trailer involved will be up for sale soon as I need a braked version for boat. Watch this space.
