Default 2HP? Buffalo Olin

Just recovered this one. Methinks it's a 2 hp. All it's missing is the oiler and mag. The mag setup shown is for an Wico EK, and I think it may be a factory retrofit. It is outfitted with natural gas mixer. Very good compression and all bearings are tight with lots-o-shims left. Can anybody make sense of the serial number? It is stamped into the frame just in back of the cylinder.

Just talked with a good pal of mine and he says it is a 4 hp Olin. The magneto trip system is a field conversion from the factory.

UPDATE: 5:10 PM July 2, 2010. We had it running for a few minutes on propane. Needs a few gaskets & a water tank hooked up. Then I can fine tune it.
