It's less than 50 cents per pound, and needs work

Not sure what it is, but it says "universal". It's in bad shape, and I didn't at first even realize that it still installed in a boat carcass, until I saw stuffing box.

Neat! I'd be interested if it were closer (much closer).

Yes... plus whether or not it spins.

My standards are low for accepting an "adoption"... but it having it spin is a big first step. I remember a friend that bought-sold cars when we younger and his big saying was "Always buy a runner".

It seems to be a Bluejacket twin.
That's a much different animal than the "Atomic 2" I bought a few years ago.:
http://www.moyermarineforum.com/foru...ead.php?t=8588 Mine was also marketed as a Kermah—maybe just a re-branded as Atomic.
This one looks to have the same bloodlines as genuine Atomic 4.
Sorry about the poor drawing but that's the way it is in my old manual.

Mine is sparked with a magneto. This has a gear-driven generator and points ignition. I have tune up specs and some engine specs for that if you need it. PM me and I can scan whatever I find relevant for it in the book.
Cute how they used a 4- cyl. distributor cap.

parts will hard to find.
I plan to get generic Fel-pro gasket material for the head gasket on mine.

... and another boat. My high school buddy had a Javelin, we often pointed out that you could see the lines of the Matador is it's design.

Begin the proud owner of three A4s... i think one more project would get me shot.
