Will be 4, they didnt make a 3 bolt head on the water cooled 2 strokes.

Like this one?



They are a bit heavier then the R3, wouldn't like to carry one to far! also a bit bigger, I have a P4 on cast base, they need a good mag otherwise they are next to useless!

Dont go breaking a indutral P5, not as many about as the P4.

The purple one is a Scott, about the same size as a P5 but the as heavy as a R3, there is about 20 known but have been up for sale lately around the £200-£300 mark.

Liquid metal mate, much safer, my Stuart N was frosted, and welded back up quite well.



It was covered in filler but I like battle damage, shows the history of the engine.

There a nice little engine if you can find one! I paid £125 for mine as a runner.











and for a idea of size, this is how I bought it.



Cheers Steve

Will have to wair to morning, pic blocked in work, from what I have see and read I would say its a P5MC, which is a marine unit with a centrifugal clutch, AFAIK they were fitted with an impulse magneto.

Cheers Steve

It looks similar to the one that I had Steve, except mine had the clutch brake fitted and maybe the carb is slightly different although mine was stripped when I got so cant be certain. A SR1 with impulse was fitted to mine.

Why would you want to do that? Impulse makes it easier to start them, they can be bastards!

AFAIK, will need to read up on the P5 Manual as see if there is anything in there, been a while since I had a marine P5.
