One thing I should add. This engine fires evenly. So the crank obviously has big counterweights. I've never opened it up. My understanding is that the target market was irrigation pumps etc.

By "even" do you mean both cylinders are on the same stroke?

Any insight into why a T engine? Common parts would be inexpensive, giving one reason, but certainly most parts were only close in design and could not cross over. There had to be more efficient designs for a similar HP engine!?
This is a really neat engine; as noted in the other DB thread it;s amazing the shear impact of the T even in non-vehicle related endeavors.

You could buy parts at every garage and hardware store. Everybody knew how to work on them. This engine could use a high tension mag such as this one or a timer and 2 T coils off of a battery

Used to be a place in Bellingham that built boat motors like this, also think they made one cylinder engines, seems like Clift engines was their name, but I could be lyin' Dave in Bellingham,WA
