Question Single cylinder 2 stroke marine engine possible ID

Hello all
I came across a little marine engine the other day on my way back to Warwick. It was stuck away in rack in the back of a shed which was hard to get to. On first appearance I thought it was a Chapman Pup as it had the rounded barrel general styling like a Pup but it had the bread loaf magneto stuck out the end of the crankshaft on the opposite side to the flywheel. It was red and it looked original paint. I could not turn the engine around to see details from the off side. All I could see was the magneto (on left) barrel with carbi with fuel bowl and then flywheel on the right). I could feel that it was not seized. It was small. I reckon I could lift it off the shelf into the back of the old Pajero if push came to shove.
I couldn't see any tags but there's nothing to say there are no tags on the side I could not see.
Anyone have any guesses as to what it is?
Why did I leave my phone in the car and didn't take a camera on the trip? The shed in question was a fair way away from the car.....bugger it.

Cheers Scott

Hard to say without a photo. There were few a manufacturers as described.
Might be worth a return trip. With a camera of course.��

Hello all.
Cobba....mate....A brick phone doesn't fit in your shorts pocket. Besides, I'm a farmer. My @r$e is hanging out of all my shorts and I had to cut the pockets out to wipe the tears away when we got a vets bill.

I do enjoy a bit or research so I've been looking. So far it could be a Chapman Pup Export model or Model A; or a Hall. I don't think it's a Hall as I cannot remember the starting gismo...but I could have just not seen it, not remembered it or forgot about it. So, so far it looks like a Chapman Pup model A. But we'll see.

When I was looking, it was a bit like asking me what colour the gob stopper was after standing in the middle of the lolly shop. Simply too much to see, too much to want and way too much to take in in one sitting.

I do have to do a return trip. I need to pick it up. Funnily enough the trailer and old Pajero were both chockered when I was driving through. I was flat out putting a lawn edger on let alone a couple of engines. The great thing about a return trip is I'll hear some more stories. I had a ball on the last visit listening to the stories

Cheers Scott

Hello all
Thanks for all the input. I have to say information from Eric, that's available on the net, led me to Chapman Pup or May. And now there's a Penguin in the mix.
I cannot remember an exhaust like the Chapman's have. Just remember....I was a kid in a lolly shop. Just too much to take in in one sitting.
I should be going past again on Sunday......

Any more guesses as to what small single cylinder 2 stroke marine engine with a magneto drive straight off the end of the crankshaft that looks kinda like a Chapman could be?
The carbi on the one I found is different to the Chapmans. About all I can remember is it has a tickler on the carbi bowl. Not very helpful am I?
Other single cylinder 2 stroke marine engine that may fit the bill...."The Hornet"?

Cheers Scott
