The SLV was introduced in 1954. This is an alloy block engine and is the design basis for all alloy block engines that succeeded it. This engine features a pressurized oil system, a cast iron sleeve, and an air vane governor. The engine produces 2 HP. The engine was discontinued in 1958 and was replaced by the Tecumseh V-20.
