Default Sunshine Kerosene Engines

I acquired this Kerosene Sunshine 7hp the other day for the carburetor and manifold for a petrol Sunshine I'm working on, at a glance they appear to be the same? only difference I can see are the two screws on the cylinder above the intake port? what differences between the Petrol and Kerosene versions ?...

Hi Typak,
Are the screws there to hold in the gauze in the intake port?
The only difference I can see is a stud hole or casting mark near the air intake on the front of the carb.everything else looks the same

Why u call it a kerosene sunshine typac? I know what the difference is between a petrol and kero one. Did the seller tell u that and did u get all the brass bits for it too?
The 2 screws are there just to locate the gauze

That should have a little elbow on it to pour some fuel into the bowl to have fuel to start. It takes a couple of seconds for the pump to get fuel up to there.

Yes well Tim , perhaps there were Kero versions of the Sunshine Two stroke engines . They no doubt would have had a supplementary fuel tank,gravity feed
and a stop cock to isolate the base tank......or am I '' Barking up the wrong tree?''
My 7 HP version does not have the two brass screws as you depicted in your initial post

Yes well I thought I would devote a few moments to respond to this silly post by Sunshineman. In the past he has posted very informative ,replies and answers to questions posed by others . It is a shame that he now has resorted to a silly reply that is neither clever nor original.

Winchester, from my understanding they had a brass starting tank in place of the regular priming cup on top of the carburetor, the starting tank being of about 1/3 pint capacity? I would think they would run quite satisfactorily on Kerosene fuel after the initial warm up, I have had little experience with Sunshine engines and may need a expert on Sunshine two strokes for this project, image from the interweb of a Kerosene Sunshine?

Mine's got that little tank for a primer but ive never heard of a Sunshine being run on kero. I think its just a bit more handy having the little tank as you dont need to find any petrol for a priming cup.

( and i have had a scotch )

Hello all.
I only had a cup of warm Milo before bed last night.

I remember reading some of Mr Sunshine's posts and there's another difference between the two versions Kim Tim the Toooolman.

Cheers Scott

Well Scott you obviously mean the trough in the port for catching unvaporized Kerosene, as for differences in Sunshine engines there are quite a few from square crankcases to flyball governors being the most obvious, none of this really relevant as the carburetor is for a petrol engine for starting the Crossley in my gold battery, no doubt I will find the original carburetor amongst the junk after fitting the replacement.

If you know it all then why did you ask Kim Tim the Tooolman?
