Default Bernardston Bargain

Here are a couple pictures of an engine I picked up at Bernarston on saturday, it is my biggest and oldest engine, it is a 1917 Fairbanks Morse 6 hp Ignitor Fired Engine I bought it complete minus the name tag, it even came with what appears to be a factory clutch pulley which can be seen in my second picture along with my free snowmobile it was a "get it out of my yard special" , I just can't argue with free .
If anyone knows if this clutch pulley is indeed a Fairbanks Morse Factory Pulley let me know
one other question I have about this engine, in the reprint of the manual in the starting instructions it talks about setting the early and late pin to "L" and then to "E" I cant find any lever with either "L" or "E" the engine does have a trip finger which trips the ignitor when spun over
any help or advice would be appreciated
