There were 2 versions, the 91 from 1982 and the larger 120 made in 1983 with a total production of around 500 engines, produced by Dennis Allen.

They were cheaply bubble-packed on a white/green card. I sold my example to Andrew Nahum who was a curator of the Science Museum in London.

A fellow from the Toy Outboard Motor group is trying to ID these engines. There was one on Ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/toy-vintage-...vip=true&rt=nc

The engine has an intake under the engine like the Atwoods-Pagco-Bullet-etc.

It doesn't look like any American engine I've seen.
