The Brown is a repro John, from somewhere is the 1970's ( I think). It is a .60 size engine and will be running a 13 x 6 prop on SEF94 fuel,should turn about 6500 rpm. Its going in my Miss Delaware to replace the other Brown that is now owned by a flying cohort.

Seems like I remember a "Burgess M5" that I drooled over as a youngster. Am I mistaken?
