I have corresponded with several collectors across the country and there is very little known about this engine - it's a rare breed. Here are some facts about it. Notice the crank handle built into the flywheel - the engine is designed to run backwards. The serial number is T 1111. Bore and stroke is 4? x 6?. Flywheels are 25' with a 3' face. There is no horsepower indicated - I would guess it to be 4 or 5 HP. Spark plug does not go into cylinder head as per most engines. It goes thru the side of the hopper.
