Photo Evans Oilfield engine identification

I just purchased a Evans oilfield engine, the only problem is the owner does not know hp.! I was wondering if anyone can tell me the year, hp., and maybe even value, any info is helpful!

Nice looking engine. Looks like it was stored inside a building.

If the bore is 6 inches that is an 8 horse engine. This is an early production because of the fact that the counter wieghts are on the crank. The later engines have the counter cast in the flywheel. I am still pumping oil with a 15 horse evans in PA about 10 miles from where these engines were built.

And a DANDY one it is! As far as I know the flange mount (or cannon style) was only made in 8 hp. Rarely is one seen for sale- you are lucky regardless of the price. Bill Klein

I have someone that is wanting to know, if you know what year they started casting the counterweights in the flywheel?
