Default Ideal air cooled engine

I have aquired an "Ideal Gas Engine Company Lansing Mich" is cast on the double flywheels as well as an F7 and those are the only marks I see. It has 14 1/2" flywheels and an open crank case. It is air cooled and the base and head are all one casting. It is a hit and miss and never had a magneto. It has a very thin tin crank guard. There are openings on the bearing covers to put in oil not grease. It appears to be a very old engine. Does any one know anything about this engine? Any help will be appreciated

Turn of the century mower engine - built before they came out with the model R closed crankcase models. Yuo don't see to many of these around!
