I don't know what it is, but I do know it's cool.

I lesson in corrosion science to be learned here. I see that all the steel parts are about totally gone while the cast iron and brass look to be in pretty good shape. Any one that has served in the deck crew of a Navy ship will have an appreciation for that.

Looks like a vivian Marine engine set up to power a winch.
Here is a you-tube video of one running.

The exhaust manifold has been reversed to clear the winch line and someone has recently taken the cooling water inlet manifold - hopefully not for scrap! The place where the maker's plate was on the front of the forward cylinder head can still be seen, but that looks like its been gone a bit longer. I'd like to know where this is, or was.

I have "friends" that bring me stuff in this same sort of condition to " check it out" see what you can do with it. Last time it was a power hack saw that was "working " when he left it outside 35 years ago. CK

The engine was something I saw on Facebook about two and a half years ago. I don't know where this engine is. I don't even recall where I saw it on Facebook. Sorry,
