Default Need help figuring out a motors make

Sorry I dont have pics of this motor and Im trying to get information about this motor for my uncle. It is a Enya 15-3 othere numbers is 3303. I have did a lil research on the web and its either a japan or london motor but the pics that I have seen of the motor doesnt match up to the top of the head witch contains two brass fuel leads as the carb would have there exactley on the opposite side of each other and at the top near the glow plug but on the side top side of the motor. It will run I did have it fired up for about 15 seconds. So this is the info im looking for what kind of fuel does these engines accept, is it a boat or airplane engine and on that note I do know that it came out of an old wooden boat. It was baught from a yard sale. But by that I am not sure u can determin it was a boat or someone just modifed it. Like I said Im realy not sure of anything other then what I have seen and described. All response or info would be greatley appreciated Thanks ahead of time.

i believe the early enya engines are japanese,you can use 20% car fuel but marine fuel is recommended.
you can probably get more info with pics or even on some boat forums.

It's a boat motor. Those "fuel leads" on the head are for water cooling.
