Stuart Turner R2Y Gen-set

Post by Locknut on Sat Nov 23 2013, 17:57

This is my next restoration project -











I know very little about this set-up but I think that I may well have a problem in obtaining spare parts for the engine as it appears that all the add-ons eg carb, water pump ect have been removed at some stage in it's life. I think that this engine should have a fly-wheel mag which is also missing.

Does anyone know where I can obtain spare parts for this engine (I believe that the R3 version is the same as the R2 apart from having a bigger bore) and also a comprehensive manual?

I have obtained the 'Instr. Book 19' which deals with R2 and R3 Stuart engines and lighting plants but this does not go into the depth of detail that I need to restore this engine.

Any thoughts or comments that you guy's have would be greatly appriciated.

Have you tried Ebay for parts, or even a doner engine? that where I'd start also at places like enstone you might find spare parts.

Thanks for your comments.I have been trawling through Ebay and they have Stuart engines on there but they are the larger P5,P55, and some 10HP,mine is,I think, 1.5HP - I only think this because the engine plate does not show the HP - despite having a space for it! It must have been a friday engine!!

Try fairways marine in Peterborough for Stuart parts, when Stuart turner closed they bought all the remaing stock.

just found this

http://www.stuartturnermarine.co.uk/index.html

Appears to be the same site but I can find no mention of fairways.

The majority of r2 and r3 parts are the same apart from piston, rod and barrel I think.

chees,
liam

Yes I will be restoring this set up.Someone has had a go at a paint job in the past but I intend striping it back to bare metal and building it up again - as to the colour I have only just started researching this but I have seen the colour 'light bronze green' mentioned.
Thanks for that information Liam - I will check it out.
