Default Oilfield engine value

Hello all,

I am new to the actual collecting of old engines. I have been going to shows for years and admiring engines of all sizes. I have started restoring a Nelson Brothers engine and of course started looking for other projects.

I am lucky, I originally hail from S. Illinois and now live in S. Indiana where many oil wells are still running with the old gas engines. I drove by a oil supply place and they have 3 medium sized engines setting out by the highway. I assume they are for sale. It was the weekend and dark outside so I don't what brand or size they are. If I can determine the size, brand, approximate condition and post some pictures could someone give me an idea of their value?

I do believe they are newer, they have the small fan cooled radiators on them. I believe they were close to being complete units other than the fuel mixer. The flywheels were about 3 1/2' diameter
