Default Economy 3 1/2 hat Model?

Hi All
Can anyone out there tell me what model Economy Engine this is, I have been told it is a 3 1/2 HP but I would like to know what designation goes with it ( S type or C type) etc
and any idea of age.

Thanks if you can shed any light on it.
Richard

Looks like an S. By the way, it likely has casting dates on the head and cylinder.

Take a look at the brass tag on top of the water hopper. Next to the HP it should say 3 1/2 and a letter. The letter is your model. My guess would be an S. If not and S the HP would probably be 3 HP.
Let us know.
