Default Continental AA7, Looking for Information

I just woke up a Continental aa7 spec 20 serial 35657. It runs great so it must not have worked to hard in it's life.
Anyway I was wondering what it was used for and what year it was built? And if anyone knew where to get an air cleaner and the adapter that bolts it to the carb.?
Thanks.

Spec No 20 was supplied to Ideal Power Lawn Mower Co for one of their mowers. It is a Model AA7 with a 6:1 gear reduction, Oil Bath Air Cleaner, Mechanical Governor, Watts & Wico magneto, 2 qt. tank mounted along side of engine, Tillotson carburetor. Not sure why Continental stated Watts & Wico magneto. My guess is that you could have gotten either brand depending which they had on hand that day. These engines were probably made between WWII and Korea, and Parts supply would have been tight. Tillotson carb would have been a ML8A, ML-15A, or ML-15B. Intake manifold was probably No AA7F-404. Air Cleaner elbow No AA7F-302 with Oil Bath AA7F-2003. Oil bath looks like those used on an N Briggs, etc.

Wow, way more information then I expected. And to think I bought this for $15.00 at an auction just because. Sat in my basement for a few years. Got the idea it might power an ice cream churn. Popped the flywheel, cleaned the points and put it back together. Two weeks later I got around to putting gas in it. Started first pull. Doesn't smoke. Sure runs smooth.
Thanks a lot for all the info., more fun knowing what it came off of!
Oh forgot it has watts mag.
