single cylinder Aster 4.5 HP engine

Recommended Posts

I am requiring to locate and single cylinder Aster 4.5 Horsepower engine , in particular the cylinder head

The engine is French and was installed in many different veteran or antique vehicles. My engine is fitted to a 1902 Rochet

 

Does anyone know of anyone who may have a single single Aster engine?

Thanks Geoff Gray

Granted, that this forum is technically correct for your inquiry, I would suggest it should also be in the horseless carriage (pre-1916) forum here as well,. That forum would have a concentration of followers more likely to be familiar with the Aster, which did seem to be quite popular in its day...

If you have time to spend, you might pore  through the annual thumbnails of new cars published in the trade journals of the day (and often now online). While seldom then mentioning the engine makers name for domestics, they were more likely to mention foreign sourced designs like the Aster. Such makes could have existing clubs or collectors groups.

A picture would be helpful. If you only need a head, someone could make one if you could find a pattern or make a pattern from your existing cylinder.
