Sunshine Model A19 - c. 1920


Australia Flag

The SUNSHINE family of engines were manufactured in Australia by Hugh V. McKay at the Sunshine Harvester Works at Sunshine in Victoria. The engines were made in a 2-stroke configuration in the 1910s & 1920s, coming in a 3hp, 5hp, 7hp, & 10hp range.

Petrol is stored in the base of the engine and it used crankcase pressure to operate a diaphragm pump to supply the carburetor. Lubrication is by total waste with 2 sight lubricators being used to feed oil directly to the main bearings, while the 3rd supplied the crankcase to splash feed the connecting rod and cylinder wall, rather than using a fuel/oil mixture. The engine had a reputation for running best under load with a distinct sound from its fish tail muffler.
