Default Engine Starter from, Seminole, Oklahoma

Did a search here and didn't find one of theses, so here goes; This was used in the oil fields to start the big oil field engines, so we all know what it is???

8 hp Wisconsin ( no engine tag ) any one have a model idea??? No crank, just rope start. I rapped a rope on and gave it a pull, The compression liked to pull my arm off??? Maybe a bigger rope will help??? The interesting thing I found is the brass tag on the frame???

Engine Type H, HP 8, Unit Serial No. 466, Manufactured by Petroleum Machine Co., Seminole, Oklahoma.
Enjoy
Bob
