    Help with identification of 2 cylinder engine and parts.

    Good morning, first post and thanks for having me. I would appreciate some help in identifying these found items. No name on the enging block. 2 Bendix Scintilla Magnitos US Navy markings type SF 2RN-6 s/n 162975 162977. The carb is a Stromberg Centura Model NA-H1E s/n 585-7934 all found in the same area. Also have 2 Hartzell aluminum propellers. I intend to sell them in the near future. They are in Connecticut and I have more pictures to share. Thank you.

    SF2RN is a standard Bendix mag part number.
    S=single mag
    F=think this indicates the older heavy case
    2=2 cylinders
    R=Right Hand location
    N=Scintilla design

    Nope, but given two cyls and the odd crank fitting, I'm guessing it's an APU part.

    It appears to be sitting upside down on the tailgate but I believe it to be a Lawrance. They were bought out by Wright. I’m totally guessing at the designation. Maybe the J-2?????? Guessing it was used as a power supply for an generator.
