Looks like a 7hp judging by the size of the mag compared to the hopper.

Too bad that big chunk is missing out of the pulley. You might find that a piece of cast iron pipe might be the same diameter, if you have a junk yard nearby.

Judging by the pics I think the carb is missing... I'm more worried about that aspect of it is... the pulley is something I can build or fix....

I believe Nelson Bros engines were sold by MacLeod's and they put their tag on them.
