What make / model engine is this?

Post by Siemei on Thu Apr 30 2015, 06:09

Dear members,

In the museum we received a running flat twin stationary engine.
For future preservation i want to know more about this engine
i looked on the internet but only found a picture were the same question was asked.

this is what we know sofar

in the mid 1980 this engine was bought at the Britisch army surplus in Germany.
The reason for the army to sell was that al stationary gasoline engines were replaced bij stationary diesel engines.

The owner painted the engine yellow so it could be used as a generator on a construction yard.
The Original color of the engine was light gray.

The engine was to big for the generator and was shelved and stored.
after 30 years storage the engine was donated to our museum.

Could you please help us identifying this former Britisch army engine?

You have a Petter Universal engine type PU8.
Introduced sometime in the very late 1930's and produced until 1945.
All supplied to military contracts.
This is an 8hp petrol engine used for a variety of purposes from generators to pump sets on landing craft.
Petrol consumption is horrendous !!
Your engine seems pretty complete apart from the air ducting (cowling) to direct cooling air around the cylinders.
