Default What is it Sure beats me

My friend Fred found this neat vertical upright air cooled with slanted fins at a recient Florida "Lawnmower/riding garden tractor" show, and couldn't resist buying it . Question is, who made it, where was it made, what was it used on/for, and all the other questions that go along with things we have that have no identifying marks . THANKS in advance for helping identify this one. Paul

I have an original Std. It is painted black and has very nice pin striping. mine has a full base and dual ignition system with the batteries and spark coil in the base.

Paul, When I got this engine there was a note attached to it. "Bought in early 1920's on a Page Portable Milker and used until electricity cam in the 1930's) I haven't been able to find any other information on the engine. I don't think it is painted the right color. Wayne Welch in freezing Minnesota.

My guess too was that it might be a cream seperator or milking machine engine? Really neat engine Paul. Is it running and is it a 2 cycle?

It is a burton page engine. used by pioneer mfg co., page milker division. They have the slant fins, and gas tank below carb. The standard has the straight fins, and gas tank above carb. They are 4 cycle. They are unique-when you take one apart. They used several types of mags and also made a battery model. Almost all threads were 20 pitch from smallest screw on up. One difference- the page has a pipe thread in exhaust. I could ramble on forever-got 7 of them- all have something different from others
