Default Need help identifying old "Wind Wheel" oil field engines

Any information you can provide me about these old engines will be appreciated. I know nothing about them other than that they came from old oil rigs. The previous owner probably had at least one of them up and running, but I have no idea if they run. There are 3, to me they appear to be the same model but I'm not sure. The model looks like Kohler K330-ccf or K830, I can't tell. Thanks for looking.

They used them to run a oil well pump jack. At least that's what the ones I've seen were doing.

Thanks for the replies and information. Anyone else know anything about these units? Like when it was put out, ect? I can't find much on the "wind wheel" online. I did find this youtube video that shows one of these things in action, thought i'd post it here.
