    41/9/3: Can anyone identify Don Eckleberry’s engine?

My brother, Gayle Seekins, got a deer last fall. He ended up with about 50 pounds of hamburger, so we decided to grind it up using an Enterprise Meat Chopper, no. 41, patented June 1896. I'm not sure of the breed of the engine (below). There's no name or numbers. Maybe readers can help identify the engine. It runs flawlessly and had its work cut out for it for about 20 minutes. The only problem was keeping the belt tight.

The grinder came from an old meat market in Wilbur, Wash. Don Eckelberry, 1155 Highway 200, Noxon, MT 59853.
