Well it is now in pieces the bore had major scoring and the top of the bore has marked corrosion. It is currently getting re-sleeved with new rings as well  as the gap was 36th for a 90 ml bore. the rings where also badly scored. The internals consist of 2 flywheels and a conrod and the oiler feed only. there is a shaft for the timing gears that was set out by 2 teeth .    all the lubrication is from a drip oiler directly on the flywheels that fling it about. am trying to find more info re original carby and magneto ,but info is a bit slow coming. Am taking a lot of pics ans measurements so as a record can be kept. Regards Rudy

Keep a good log of everything Rudy. Being such a rare specimen you have all your answers as you take it apart. When it baffles the guys overseas and had issues identifying it, all info is going to be hard to come by and possibly slow to happen as well.

could it be that it started life as a cycle engine and a bush mechanic converted it to stationary ?

There is a photo of the twin cylinderwater cooled engine on a bike. I am not ruling out anything. Regards Rudy

I suppose it is possible that someone replaced the original alloy crankcase with a cast iron one, complete with mounting lugs and S logo, but unlikely.
