Hi there. I recently acquired a small 4 cylinder STANPARK short block and am in need of identifying it. I was led to believe it is a Triumph engine, but so far my limited knowledge and dead end web searches have me stumped. It looks like a new rebuild without head or oil pan.

Cast on one side of block is the Stanpark logo and the number 306840 along with "J79". On top of the block is stamped FE48296E. The new pistons are marked on top with "18697 ID STD FRONT". The top of the block measures about 14 1/4" long where the head would sit. I am going to include a couple of photos that may help.

If this is not a Triumph engine, I apologize for any inconvenience, but any information, such as where I might look up info or what type of engine it is, would be greatly appreciated. I live in Jacksonville, Florida. Feel free to reply with questions.

Many thanks
Bob S

Just so you know, that's arguably THE MOST DESIRABLE of all Spitfire engines (original camshaft notwithstanding and, of course, easily changed), being the "small journal" 1296!

I still find use for the Information Warehouse provided by Triumph Spitfire Magazine - now a web site only. Thanks to Shawn Franks for maintaining it!
