Westbury Seal 4 cylinder side valve engine - stock code 1748

Interesting and rather rare example of the Westbury "Seal", a 4 cylinder side valve engine. This one was built to power a model boat and is fitted with a recoil starter, centrifugal clutch and reversing gearbox designed for operation by radio control. A 3 volt coil provided the sparks. The engine runs on ordinary unleaded petrol (gas to our friends in the USA!).

Exhibited at the Model Engineer Exhibition in London, where it won a bronze medal.

Length engine 6 inches
Base 13 x 5 inches
