Found this one in "97, tag says:

Farm Electric
The Ford Parts Plant

No.1304 Mod.160
Watts 1500 Volts 40 RPM 1200
Farm Electric Corp
Poole Engineering and Machine Co
Woodbury, Baltimore Maryland

I found another in "04, No. 1594
Both run and generate. Big blocky looking thing, but a hermit could live inside. Never saw that much room inside an engine. Splash oiled, I think they may have had a problem getting oil all the way to the top.
Aside from Mod T distributor and radiator caps for gas and oil outside, they have T piston and rod and, I think, modified crank and cam.I had to rig a mixer for this one, the other was all original.

Going back looking at the pictures, neither of mine have a fuel bowl, probably a later improvement.
