Caille Perfection 4 hp,   Owner:   Jim McCracken  Crawfordsville, Oregon.


I have only ever seen four Caille Perfection two cycle vertical stationary engines. It appears that not to many of these engines were made. Noticeable differences in the Caille and Detroit are:  (1). Caille crank shaft is tapered and threaded on each end with nuts.  (2). Governor linkage and air-intake different shape castings then Detroit. (3). Boss on side of water jacket for oiler is longer then on a Detroit.  (4). Diameter of piston, flywheels, crank shaft not the same as Detroit's spec's.
