Exclamation engine id/info

I picked up this interesting engine yesterday. All I really know is that it was made in and came from Canada. There are a few traces of red paint in protected areas. No tag and the lack of rivet holes suggest it never had one. Only numbers I've found besides the part numbers is a large 1 stamped on end of crank. I'd like to hear from anyone who might have one of these or know who made it.

G'day Nick
Obviously another company has tried to copy the Fuller & Johnson engines again, They must have been a good engine if other companys tried to copy them! Especially over here in Australia.
Cheers
Mick

Yeah Mick, seems when the Canadians and Aussis needed something to copy they chose the best engine ever made. I sure would like to know if the same company in Canada that copied the farm pumper made this engine or if it was another one.

Cheers NICK
