Not on my K International, the bowl is down and looks exactly like the one in the picture. I guess in a different application they might run bowl up.
My guess is the basic casting is used in a lot of different applications, and used with different arms etc to meet the application.

That is a sweet old machine! Looks like the two center cylinders of the engine are the compressor and the two outer are the engine driver of everything.

Yeah! I love the firing order with the "0"s in there in place of 2 and 3! How many kw is the generator?

For the fuel pump I'd just sub a low pressure electric and be done with it. Make sure you look for a "low pressure" model, as most others nowadays are aimed at high pressure fuel injection systems. BIG difference in pressure.
