Yes Jerry, C.V. stands for "cheveaux vapeur" which translate to Horse Power in English. Can you show us some pictures of this engine as I doubt it was built by J-A Roy, they more than likely were selling engines built by someone else. If you can't post pictures here you can send them directly to me at:

Jerry,
The tag on your engine probably reads J-A. Roy Inc. and not J-R. Roy. J-A Roy Inc. is an hardware store in Quebec.

Your engine was built at "La Fonderie de Plessisville" in Plessisville, province of Quebec, Canada.

My notes indicate that "Engine #2668" is a 7hp engine and was built in 1930.

These engines were green in color.
