Vertical Air-Cooled Engine
saw R&V offering this vertical air cooled model, offered
that year in only a 4hp size.
This outfit, though similar in principle and general outline
to our Standard Vertical Engines, requires no cooling system
whatever. It is strictly air-cooled - water tank, pipe connections,
hoses, etc., being entirely dispensed with. Again, like other
R&V engines, no effort was spared to adorn the engine from
top to bottom with fancy pin striping.
Compact. Cylinder and cylinder head in one casting. No packing
to blow out. Hinged crankcase. Reducing gears and all working
parts enclosed. All bearings renewable and adjustable. Ball
bearing fan, reducing friction to the minimum. Self-contained,
gasolene supply in base. Supplementary or double ported exhaust,
thus relieving and preserving the exhaust valve. No cooling
tank. Light weight.
Engine mounted skids with battery box attached containing a
set of dry cells; high tension spark coil with switch and wiring,
two spark plugs, monkey wrench, two connecting-rod wrenches,
spanner wrench, oil can and muffler; also an instruction manual
for setting up, starting and general care of engine.
is finned to allow for extra cooling area, this is surrounded
by a metal cowling which aids the direction of air flow over
the head and barrel by the fan.
