Would have been something like this with cooling circulation pump.



Bearings etc are easy enough to source, parts of the R2 and other non-marine engines are a bit harder to come by.

Peter might be able to help with further information.

It has been speculated that the 'Y' originally stood for yacht as a cooling pump would have been primarily required on lighting sets installed in boats as opposed to tank cooling, standard on fixed plant.

Agreed, but the day books normally mention if a pump was supplied, hence my comment.

See others that I have checked, a pump is often mentioned.

I had this book out since last week, so fairly quick to look it up.

D Hillyard was David Hillyard, he also bought 38663, another similar set on the 23rd April 1957, a bit back to front but that's what is in the book.

That one came back for a rebore on the 9th December 1969.

"Tektrik Tucker Start" comes up quite often, but I can't find much about it.

Both of David Hillyard's engines are so noted.

Any ideas?
