Default Info for a gas tank on a 4.5 hp Jumbo

I have a 4.5 hp Jumbo ( The Jumbo Line ) that is missing the gas tank.In the Wendel book it shows a Nelson Bros. Jumbo on a skid that was sold by the P & O Plow company with what looks like a Battery box/ Gas tank combo.The photo shows an engine without a Magneto.My question is,Did they have an exposed gas tank if the engine had a Webster mag or did they still hide the tank in a wooden box ? Does anyone have a Jumbo like this so I could see a photo of the box or tank only ? The skid on the jumbo I have is just like the one shown in the book.Any info would help.I plan on making a tank or a box and a tank if needed.

Were these engines sold with a Cart ?
