Roberts 4X, In-line 4 Engine, 1911. Creator: Roberts Motor Company Featured Print

Roberts 4X, In-line 4 Engine, 1911. Creator: Roberts Motor Company

The Model 4X engine was built by the Roberts Motor Company of Sandusky, Ohio. An important design objective was light weight, which was achieved through the extensive use of aluminum and magnesium alloys in the cylinders and crankcase, and a hollow crankshaft. Also like all Roberts engines it operated on a two-stroke cycle operation to reduce parts count. Between 1911 and 1912, Roberts engines were used by many noted exhibition pilots, and more Roberts engines were said to be built than by Hall-Scott and Curtiss combined during this period. This engine artifact was manufactured about 1911 and powered a Curtiss-type, float-equipped aircraft (hydroplane) built by Harry H. Ford. Mr. Ford was a self-taught pilot and did most of his flying between 1912 and 1913 in the area of the Bridgeport, Connecticut harbor

Wolseley hydroplane, 1914. Creator: Kirk & Sons of Cowes

Wolseley hydroplane, 1914. The Wolseley Motors company, a British motor vehicle manufacturer founded in early 1901 by Vickers, also built marine power-units for a variety of watercraft. At first engines for launches were made in partnership with the well-known manufacturers, the Teddington Launch Works, to supply the launches. Demand for marine engines grew and Wolseley also designed and manufactured engines for hydroplanes, cruisers, passenger ferries and lifeboats. Many of the larger vessels were built by S. E. Saunders Ltd., at Cowes, Isle-of-Wight. The 120-hp V8 units for hydroplanes were of very advanced design, where weight was critical, and so required considerable development work
