Remarks: Listed on Temporary Card 1998.91.1.temp. with a Luke propeller. Engine not frozen. Came with coil "Shower of Sparks" from a rotary aircraft engine. Aft engine bearing has roller bearing replacing original babbet bearing. Has a box/display stand. This engine is likely one donated by Burrage L. Woodberry, of 25 Cross Street, #A, Beverly, MA. Our 2004 examination recorded the serial number as 92358 as noted above, rather than the serial # 92853 as listed by Mr. Woodbury on the Certificate of Gift signed October 31, 1998. However, the number of cylinders, horse power and model number are in agreement. This engine now has a schebler carburetor for use as a running display, replacing the original zenith unit.
