" Anybody know the answers to the following questions about Universal Motor Company engines:

1. What is a "U.J. Automatic", which was apparently made from at least 1958 to 1960? "UJ" is the model designation (and casting model id) for an Atomic Four.

2. What block was used for the Seal Lion 8? Are there any of the straight 8 Universal or Kermaths left, and how much are they worth?

3. When did Universal switch from babbited bearings, and what models have bearing inserts besides the Atomic Four? "
