O&R Type 98 Engine

Recommended Posts

This arrived a couple of weeks ago, a fairly early 1960's type 98 engine, the paint colour is original as far as I can tell, I haven't seen another in this unusual colour.

If anyone knows what tool it may have been used for please let me know.

The tank bracket & strap needed a bit of adjustment and some screws, now reassembled.

I don't know the exact application for this engine, that's why I asked in the first post.

Yes you did, I was so engrossed in looking at the engine I didn't finish reading. Very cool!

I've had a better look at the parts attached to the PTO shaft of this engine, it looks like an adaptor kit for something like a propeller, which doesn't help with identifying the original use.

But I have found a reference in a parts list from 1964 for an externally threaded PTO shaft (part no. 42-39) being used on the type 98 engine, clearly mine doesn't have one, but it could have been changed as someone has definitely had this engine apart, the screws for the induction housing have been shortened too, so it probably had an adaptor plate or housing.

Also I had a go at bidding on a another type 98 engine (I asked the seller what type it was as it looked unusual), I didn't win it but here are some pictures of it showing the externally threaded PTO shaft mentioned in the parts list, together with an adaptor housing I haven't seen before. The adaptor housing looks like was attached to something flat, also note the long stop switch wire.

Anyone seen one like this before?
