Jap Engines


Jap is an English engine manufacturer, who I have to admit I know very little about. I have only one Jap engine, and I really haven't had a chance to do much with it. I have a manual for this, but I cannot work out even how to turn the engine over!! The crankshaft at the flywheel end has no facility for a crank, I may have to fit a rope pulley to the drive end, unless someone shows me how.

The engine is fitted with a Wico type 'A' magneto, a Zenith carburettor, and a massive finned exhaust system across the top of the engine (??).

If anyone has any info on this engine, especially how to start it, I'd love to hear from you!!!

Photos will be coming soon.
