Smile Fuller Johnson Special Electric maybe

Got this one over the weekend. Has NB in the castings, screams F&J. But both of the flywheels look to be for a generator or special electric application, like some Fairbanks engines, high crowns on both for a belt as well as wider. Bore is 4.5", big for an engine in the 3HP range. No tag.

Starting about 1920 F&J made all the flywheels on their smaller engines smaller in dia but wider with crowned rims. This went on for the N, NA, NB and some NC/ND/NK engines. Only the big model K engines were available with extra heavy flywheels for electric lighting. You have a regular model NB with standard issue flywheels.
