The first group of engine castings are back from the foundry. These are for a 1/5 scale model of a Marion 25 hp 4 cycle I'm building.

Paul, this is a new design. The original engine I'm scaling from is pictured below.

Was/is the Marion an oil field engine?

Frank, I do believe the Marion would be concidered an oil field engine, though, I believe the one I'm modeling was used to pump water. There was a discusson/article in recent issue of Gas Engine Magazine about what an oil field engine is.
The Marion engines are somewhat rare, and little seems to be known about them. I would appreciate if anyone having information about the Marion engine company or their products would share it with me.
