The only Cooper engine I have is an RV-1, a one horsepower angle-engine built by Outboard Marine Corporation. It is a very precision built engine, and when I got it, it was overall in good condition except that it was missing some parts and was stuck. It is now unstuck and I have most of the necessary parts to make it operational. All i need now is a hot ignition system!! I have also acquired another similar engine, marked as a genuine OMC, with a kick starter, which i will be fitting to this one. The new one has been treated very badly, and has had many 'modifications' done to it, and it will only be any good for parts. Unfortunately, the magneto on it is also stone cold.
If anyone out there has a flywheel with a decent magnet on it that they would be willing to part with, I'd love to hear from you!!
Anyone who has any info, or better still, spare parts for this engine, I'd love to hear from you!
