Default Trivia - What Engine Does This Belong To?

This is courtesy of Don Selmer who supplied the pictures. First picture (to make it a little harder) - what engine does this belong to? If it takes a little while, I will post the next picture showing more features. If someone does get it right, I will share Don's other picture to share further.

Here goes...




Thanks Don...

Ok, that was way fast - here is another picture of the same engine. So what horsepower is it?




This is all courtesy of Don Selmer....

Thanks Travis, I thought it might be fun to start a thread and have fellow collectors take candid shots of unique features on some of their engines. Kinda like Travis does on a regular basis. But not of the full engine. Let's see some unique close-up features of your engines

Well done Jon, Brian, and Nick. Here is another Double Efficiency Fuller and Johnson sideshaft - 20hp I believe showing a little more of this style engine...






And an 18hp Double Efficiency sideshaft





Doug, I don't know what the engine is in your picture but I sure hope someone out there is able to figure it out..... Nicely done!

Don't know if they all are or not, but I believe at least some of them are from Baraboo......

Just asking Don. Swed used to have one. Don't remember the hp. 10 I think. Maybe it's still there. I just don't get out of our building much during the show. Jeff W
