Default Nelson Bros.

Looks like a 1-3/4hp. Nelson Bros. Check the face of the flywheel (pulley side) and you will find stamped there the serial number and the model's letter(s).

I agree, it is a Nelson Brothers made engine. The head and other parts should have part numbers that would help tell you what model and HP it is. Nelson Brothers sold their engines to many "jobber" companies that resold the engines under various names.
