Default Water Cooled Briggs & Stratton? What model?

A little out of place putting this in the Small Air Cooled Engine category, but I couldn't find a Water Cooled Briggs and Stratton section I saw this in a guy's garage today and it has left me rather perplexed. I didn't buy it, I'm not even sure if it's for sale, or, if so, for how much.

I looked it over thoroughly and found no nameplate. It's got a flywheel with no fan blades, and a tiny little belt driven water pump! No radiator, perhaps it was marine?? It has no air cleaner, and it has very little compression. Perhaps those two conditions are related

Obviously the little fuel tank is not original.

It *looks* a lot like the ZZs I've been working on lately, except of course it has a water jacket instead of fins

So what is it?

Neat piece ! I bet your getting a lot of emails and messages about this ! It is a very unique item. looks like a model Z or something like that, most likely uses on a small boat as propulsion ! I have a NPW on a small generator unit. They are a very cool unique unit ! If I was you I would get it !

Very cool piece! First one like it I have seen. I've seen quite a few NPWs, but never one like that. May have been part of a marine genset. The propulsion units usually have an angled base on them.

Based on the responses seen here, it would seem to be the general consensus that I should try to acquire this engine

It would be nice to be able to provide electricity AND heat during a power failure

I have a feeling the fellow may want quite a bit of money for it, but I could be wrong. What do you guys think would be reasonable?

Bear in mind again, that it's missing it's air cleaner, original fuel tank, and some of the governor linkage. And it has almost NO compression at all. Don't know if the mag is good...

I assume these never had radiators, instead expected to connect to what ever was handy?

Well, I ended up snagging the water cooled ZZ today Here's a photo of it in the truck. When I get to working on it (a few projects partially taken apart are ahead of it already ) I'll start a proper thread for it. This post is just to provide closure to this thread

Thanks for all the input,
Keith
