Mystery engine revealed !

Although neither guessed the size, both twn Chen and mchandrayan were correct in naming the engine as an ENYA. It is an ENYA 09-IV with the single rear ball race, hence the "BB" stamped on the front housing. These are easily identifiable by the fact they wear a red anodised prop driver, and are one of the lesser known ENYA's. Factory stats quote the BB 09 as putting out 0.22 BHP, compared to 0.20 BHP for the standard plain bearing 09. This particular example is an early 09-IV, when they still had the smaller exhaust stack. BOB
