Default Orr & Sembower

I recently aquired a 4hp Orr & Simbower vertical engine mounted on a winch base. The original carb and cooling tank are missing. Other than this the engine is complete and in perfect shape. Does anyone have information on this engine? Any litature would be great. I would be glad to pay for a copy. thanks in advance Ted

Photo Re: Orr & Sembower

Here is a pic of an O&S engine sold at the Baraboo Swap Auction in 2002. I don't have any other pics of it.

I do have a cement mixer that was sold by Orr & Sembower that uses a 3 1/2hp Hercules. I would like to find some paper on it.

Good looking hopper Steve! Is that a headless since the plug is in the hopper?
He didn't mention missing a head, makes me think it's a different model?
