Default 4 cylinder opposed APU engine

Some time back, I aquired four military surplus APU engines. These are marked 32 cubic inches, are aircooled and overhead valves. They're governed and have fully aircraft type high tension sheilding. They look like really great little engines. I'm including a photo of the nameplate from one of the engines. All four are very similar but manufactured by different companies. If any one has any information as to horsepower or knows of a source of documation, I would sure appreciate it. Gary McGill

I can't help you but a picture or two of the whole engine would help others who might be able to help you. Yoy know the saying a picture is worth a 1000 words. Joseph

This engine makes reference to the military Technical Manual. TM5-2805-203. Anybody that knows their way around the MIL doc websites should be able to dump you the manual, or somebody will have it for sale.
