The flywheel weight in your pictures looks added instead of being cast into the flywheel...

Thoughts?
Travis,
That looks to be 2hp Quincy engine made in Quincy, Pa.

Travis,

I think the weights are actually part of the flywheel. It all appears to me to be one casting. I'm not sure if something could be added to cast like that, but I'm no expert in that area for sure.

EngineHunter - here are a couple photos of ours. The fuel saver uses a long brass rocker which rides up a ramp on the exhaust pushrod. SN6117.

Is the bore of your engine about 6 inches?

Still wondering if anyone out there in engine land has any ideas as to what this engine might be.

Thanks!

It looks like it has a carb similar to the Field Jr. Do any other engines use a carb like this one? It may have been a purchased item.
Odd flywheels are the main distinction.
