    See the notes for Albert Lea model 65. This 400 cp model 66 was contemporary with model 65. Both are illustrated in the 1915 Brite Lite catalogue.

    Not so sure about robust. The base plate is buckled and bowed from over pressure. It was leaking from the central bolt but sealed when I re soldered it. It has been sitting here for years and never run but other than a clean of the fuel feed, valve casting and generator it was in working order. So I managed to make it live again. ::Neil:: Brite_Lite_66_05.jpg Brite_Lite_66_08.jpg
