Jacobsen. Model m1,2,3,or4. Ones I have seen with throttle
governed carbs are usually from mowers. No throttle on carb was from a gen set or pump. Yours looks like it has an aluminum rope cup. Saw one like that on a belt drive generator once.You are lucky you have the air cleaner because they are usually missing.

The rope pulley looks to be cast, maybe bronze? It has a gold color in the casting. Any idea how old the engine could be?

My guess would be mid 1930s. If you search Johnson utilimotor/Jacobson you will find information.
