Default Iowa Dairy Separator Company Engine

I was wondering if anyone out there had info a 2 HP Chore Boy, not an Associated, but an Iowa Dairy Separator Co engine. It has a cast brass tag and resembles a hopper cooled waterloo boy.
Please help.

associated manufactures was a division of Iowa Dairy Separator Co. at one time it was a very large conglomerate of company's and had with weird ties with Davis engine works, Sherman and smith john deer and others. they also at times marketed products made by Maytag and john deer. At different times john deer sold Iowa cream separators and shared magniteos and 18-25 hp engine. Most likely the engine is a extremely early associated made by Sherman and smith. they where bought out by Iowa dairy to start there venture into the engine market. Please show us a picture of the engine very early associated are very uncommon.

I will do my best to upload a picture when I am back from the hurricane relief effort. I'm working the powerlines now. I know it's not a sherman Smith, it looks like like a Waterloo boy. It is tagged Iowa Dairy Separator Co and has their IDSCo logo in the middle of the nameplate.

Thank you for the link. I spoke with 2 Waterloo historians over the summer, one who ran the museum out there. He stated that Associated was formed by Iowa Dairy Separator Co and they later bought Sherman Smith who was selling Associated engines before associated made there own. He emphasised mine was an Iowa Dairy Separator Co engine before associated made them.I can't find an easy link to post photos, but I will get a pic out to you one way or another.
Thank you again.
