This is my No.2 Eclipse. It was pulled out of a creek. It is 90% complete
but stuck solid. All I am missing is the magneto, the end of the carby and
fuel tank.This is also an early Eclipse engine. It does not have a patent
date cast on it. The patent date can be clearly seen on Edd's engine below.
removed the piston on 24th March 2001.
The carby for my engine (Thanks Edd!)
Progress. New exhaust valve, cam follower and many minor repairs. August 2002.

Engine in undercoat

15 September 2012 I brought this No.2 Eclipse home. I will make one good engine out of my two and have nearly enough for another.
This is Edd Payne's No.2 Eclipse. These are mechanically very similar to the No.1, just bigger.
The No.2 has two 16" flywheels and a shipping weight of 370 pounds.
Note the patent date on this engine.
