Default What make???

Can anyone identify this engine? I have been trying to figure out the make for years. It's a 4-stroke and is missing the correct timing setup. I also beleive this is not the correct carburetor as it should be an overflow type (I think??). It does have a place for a fuel pump but that is missing too. The fuel tank is in the base and the engine was hooked up to a pump jack when we found it.

Any help identifying it would be great.

Thanks,
Jim

Does the engine have any casting marks? I am thinking it looks a lot like a Fits Henry Guptil, They were a Massachusetts builder that mafe Roural "portable" fire pumps. The engined look a lot like yours, they were connected to a inverted 3 cylinger pump via chain, So there was only 1 flywheel and no govenor. Just a guess but it is possabal

I can't find a casting mark on it. It does have a governor, and is hit & miss.

Thanks,
Jim

This engine is marked "F - G Co Cambridge Mass" and maybe the engine type Mike is talking about. This one has a single solid flywheel and no governor. I took these photos at the Boylston Mass show last year. I though the owner said it came from an orchard sprayer.
