Photo W type stover and a marine

Hi all, i went to a swap meet last weekend and picked up a w type stover 3hp and an unidentified marine with a stationary base under it. I have been told that the tank cooled w types are hit'n'miss and the hopper cooled throttle governed is this correct. the marine looks similar to a columbia or a detriot. yours Dave

Dave-
Here in the US, I have never seen a 3HP type W tank cooled engine. They sold them here in the US as hopper cooled engines, both hit and miss and throttle governed. I have seen pictures of a 3 HP type W tank cooled owned by a collector that I know personally who lives in New South Wales, but I have never seen one here in the US. I sure would like to locate one down there to purchase and bring it back to the US!!!

I know of two tank cooled, both owned by friends of mine here in victoria. They are a very nice looking engine but i wanted a hopper cooled version as they take up less room. The next stover i will be looking for is either a V or a K , these should look good with my 4hp yb stover.

Hi Dave,

Would you have a picture you could share of your unknown marine engine? I have one that I cannot identify shown here

Don't really see any with the stationary base under them. The guy I bought it from told me it was removed from a barge.

Hi Dave, the Cooper (Stover) W engines were sold as hit and miss and throttle-governed in both hopper and tank cooled styles. Here is a throttle-governed hopper cooled engine taken at the Heyfield National.

Hi all, I have attached a pic of my Stover (Cooper) W 3HP hit and miss. The engine is complete and running, although the big end bearing needs attention. My engine is equiped with a brass bodied Webster. Does anyone know when the 'pot metal' bodied Webster took over from the brass ones?

The use of "pot" metal began around 1917. During World War I brass was in high demand for the war effort so this became a more inexpensive alternative.

Hi,

My Dad just obtained a throttle governed Stover Type W. It is a hopper cooled 3Hp engine, SN 41/394.

It is missing the carburetor linkage and he is trying to find someone with a spare linkage, or who is able to provide photos of one so he can make one.

If anyone has an engine like this, or knows of someone who does please get in touch.

Thanks,
Shane.
