" Jon,

Do you have any more information on it...? How many cylinders, what displacement, inline, v-8, what vintage...? A picture?

I am not familiar with that engine, but as you know many marine engines were made from "industrial" blocks.

Regards,

"Hello
I assume you are asking about the Swedish Göta Motor. Todays engine is a small petrol (gas) two-stroke engine constructed 1952. It's with one or two cylinders that gives 5 or 10 hp at 2000 rpm. The engine is very simple and longliving. You find more information (in Swedish) at www.gotamotor.se ("")
You have to scroll down on this page to see some pictures and tachnical data.
The factory started the production 1907 and is still alive."
