Flywheel Forum has always been an interesting read for me. I recently acquired an engine from Eastern Washington that I have not been able to identify. I have sent photos around to most everyone I know and no luck. Not even a guess. So, I am asking for help from your very knowledgeable readers. No name, part numbers or serial numbers have been found on the engine. It’s missing the rocker arm, pushrod and the holdout mechanism, if it had one.
