OK here goes: #1 Jim Walker 'Firecracker' .065*
                     #2 Royal Spitfire -also .065
                     #3 Norvel AME/Big Mig 049 or 061 (should have '0.8' or '1.0' written on the side in black ink to distinguish which size version)**
                     #4 G-Mark .061
                     #5 G-Mark 'humming Bird .03
                     #6 K&B Aurora Fury 049
                     #7 Gilbert .07
                     #8 Ohlson&Rice 'Midjet' 049

* essentially a badge engineered derivative of #2
** you can distinguish between the AME and Big Mig variants by removing the head and looking at the transfer ports-the AME use three large transfers, the Big Mig uses three sets of paired holes of smaller overall area.

1. Jim Walker Firecracker, it came with a hand held bulb and a long thin tube which connected to that throttle flapper for throttle control.


       Engine to the right of it assuming it's #3    

Early Norvel, if it's marked 1.0 in ink it's a .061. if .08 it's a .049. It could be a Big Mig which has 5 internal cutouts on the cylinder liner ( Visible with plug removed) or 3 ports indicating a AME which is a higher performance, somewhat like Medallion vs TD. Big Mig and AME versions were available in both displacements.

2. Royal Anderson Spitfire .065 displacement


4. I believe it's a G-mark .061.     .061 is casted onto the bypass on the opposing side that you show.

5       G-Mark .030          Engine with no number to the right is a Gilbert .07

6 K&B Allyn Sky Fury       Engine with no number to the right is a O&R mite .049

That's funny, when I first posted my take on the engines, I didn't even see Chris's post. Pretty darn funny actually

Thanks everyone and that was helpful Hand Shake

The Norvel is an AME .061

For the Fury, is it "Allyn" or "Aurora"?

For the O & R, is it "Midjet" or "Mite"?

The Fury was originally produced by Allyn Sales Co-BEFORE they merged with K&B-and available in various models-inboard, outboard and aero. AFAIK only the 049 was produced-the larger twins only came after the merger with K&B...so your engine could be referred to as an Allyn Sky Fury 049....or equally validly as a K&B-Allyn Fury....depending on how long production continued after the merger-but definitely NOT as an Aurora anything...

Ref: AMEE pp4-5

I stand by my original identification of the O&R as a 'Midjet' not a 'Mite'-the former has the large tank, the latter is tankless and with a shorter crankshaft bearing...

Ref: AMEE p186

Sorry, I got em mixed up. O&R had eagle and O K used the bear. Early Midjet has brass eagle on the cylinder, I was thinking bear.
