Default Unknown Marine Engine

Here is an engine that I have kicking around in the shed, I was doing a little spring cleaning and took some pictures to see if I could find out anything about it. As you can see it is a twin cylinder and definitely has marine engine in it.

2 things that I say are NOT marine is 1, it has 2 flywheels and 2 check out the muffler. and I would say it is NOT a "will fit" muffler because it is mounted on a 3 bolt triangle flange that lines up perfectly. I would NOT expect a muffler like this on a marine engine.

The previous owner must have thought a lot about this little engine because it appears to have had a broken piston and he went to a foundry and had real nice patterns made and had a new piston casted but unfortunately he passed away before machine it out and putting the engine back together.

It is missing the carb and it seems to me that it is a throttler because of the arm that comes off the vertical flyball shaft with an arm the I assume would have a piece of linkage to connect to the carb throttle shaft.

I know nothing about marine engines and would like to see if anyone out here can identify this one.

Also note on the opposite side from the governor you can see a plunger and eccentric for a water pump but NO pump body. There is another pump that came with the engine witch I think they were going to modify to the engine.
Thanks for your thoughts and impute! Mike

Thanks for the info. I Google ferro and agree that this is what it is. Is there anyone interested in restoring this engine ? I would be interested in selling or trading it. Mike

What are you asking for it? About how much does it weigh? I have a Ferro Type 7 I'm working on... It might make a cool set.

I think it's a stationary engine. Double flywheels, governor, looks like a factory muffler, no water pump.

There is a water pump. At least 1//2 of one. I do believe it is a stationary version of a ferro marine engine
