Thank you Ralph, and thank you all.
Quite a book! I flipped through it some. The link should take you to the opening (blank) pages. Tap/click (I'm using a cell phone) the right-hand page to flip forward in the book page-by-page. Tap/click the left-hand page to flip back. The slide bar down below will travel you through lots of pages fast. I found most of the details on engine info in the back pages...book totals 182 pages. I was on page 176 when I stopped, and in the middle of a lot of good info: https://archive.org/details/cinderellasflee01nuttgoog/page/n1/mode/2up
Please check out this website about the book Cinderfellas of the Fleet by Ltjg William W.Nutting USNRF, published by the Standard Motor Construction Co.,1920. This book is a commentative book for the WW1 Victory. This company got the contracts to make the Standard 220-hp Engines for both the RN Motor Launches and USN 110ft subchasers . Just type in Cinderfellas of the fleet Nutting,William Wasburn 1884 in the search box and this will take to this book.
I tried to create a link didn't work.
This is from the University of Michigan . The page is called Internet Archive.HTH.
Can anyone here tell me, either an online source or a book that would give me 1nformation about the Standard 220-hp engines used in the Elco 80-foot MLs built for the RN, and in the 110-ft SC-1 Class SCs of WWI?
