    Default Can anyone identify Vintage Citroen Engine?

    We recently pulled this old Citroen engine out of my father-in-laws shed.
    We believe he bought it for the magneto which he wanted for his restoration of a
    1923 5HP-CV2 Racer, but this is a much bigger 4 stoke engine about 1400cc, but a very early Citroen.
    Sorry I haven't cleaned the grass off it, I cant find an engine number, only Andre Citroen on the head
    and F.P.S. on the aluminium engine mount. It is also a very impressive radiator fan that could probably
    power a small plane. Any help would be great

    Michael has a 1923 B2 van and roadster and we have this tourer. It looks very similar to our engines.

    Yes it certainly looks like a B2 engine. Looking at the cooling fan (not original to this engine) and the pulley on the other end, it seems that the engine was used for driving something other than a car hence the large cooling fan.
    The engine number is to the left of the carburettor on that flat narrow ridge. Should begin with B2.........
