It could possibly be Willys-Overland or Whippet.

The Whippet was available in both a 4 cylinder and and a six. The four had a timing chain driven generator and the distributor was driven off the end of the generator.

Then, I could be wrong.

Chevys of that vintage were overhead valve engines.

Sometimes the make and model of starter and generator tags can narrow down what it is. The starter looks like a Delco-Remy, which are very well documented.

Isn't that marking on early Dodge engines?

Depends what you call early Frank.
Before 1926 Dodge engines used a starter/generator and after that the separate starter and generator are on the opposite side of the engine shown in the photo.......
