Does anyone know if the serial number on old O&R engines contains any information such as year of manufacture and displacement.

Thanks.

I do not think so, but with a photo or two might could ID it by its features in the reference manual.

1948 Mounting lugs back & have holes in mounting lugs. All else same as 1947 #055749 to 067219
1949 Staked on alum. head W/1/4" instead of old 3/8"plug, no tanks.
Last of the .60 sideport engines #073145 to 077766
1950 on is FRV 1st production natural alum. head. No tank, 1/4" plug #078891 to 080830

These # are through the end of production about 1953 under Harry Rice as Irvin Ohlsson left the company in 1949

1949 & on .29 #002700 to 059457
Early production had silver staked on alum. head & rubber cyl. gasket. Rice prod. had blue anodized head & alum gasket. These blue head models were de-tuned to prevent cyl. separation from the crankcase.

These engines were also de-tuned for the above same reason .

O&R engine serial numbers. Empty Looking for some help on this 60

Post  Bluzman23 Wed 3 Aug 2022 - 10:49

I have a O&R 60 that was given to me when I was a kid from a family friend who was into model planes and such. I never used it. ┬áIt sat in a box with some original paperwork and what looks like paperwork from other related things. I have had it about 42 years I’m thinking.
The serial number is 073038. Trying to just confirm it’s age. I read the post from Ken Cook with the numbers but something wasn’t matching up. Not sure if it’s from 1949 or maybe 1948.
Any help would be great.
I have pictures just trO&R engine serial numbers. 631bdc10

The glow plug was invented in late 1947. Seeing that your engine still has a ignition timer , your model is earlier. Once the glow plug was invented, that changed the hobby. O&R sold two types of conversion kits. You could convert the engine from a side port to a front rotary valve and you plugged the side of the case with a cork.

They also sold a kit to delete the front timer assembly. A cover took it's place when removed and you ran it on a glow plug.

I believe the .60 had quite a few years of production starting from about 1941.
