The first pics looks like the fuel pump must run on sideshaft so I would say it is a R&V half shaft engine

Rob and Swanstone nailed it! Here are a few additional pics of that engine...

But not Larry Lucke's....








Any more ideas on the red sideshaft?

I could have bought one of those (possibly the very engine in the photo) at the Waukee Swap Meet sometime in the later 1980's. I think it was $800. Too much and too ugly I thought at the time. I was dumb then, I'm smarter now!...

A hint about the "Red" one ( Yes, I know what it is ) but I want to get fellow stackers involved on this thread. Now the Hints: It was at Baraboo this year, starts with the letter " M " and it was parked just outside ( North ) of the "BIG ENGINE Shed"

Thanks Travis for taking the time to get those Pictures posted.

No, Dwayne it not a Thompson but they are built in Wisc. A couple of hints on the unidentified (2) green engines. They're made by the same company (post 23 and post 52.) I believe around 1904. The small one is an air-cooled the large one is a tank cooled. The history of the engine manufacture is that the castings we're made in a garage and across the street was a blacksmith shop. I have (4) more pictures to post soon. Files are TOO LARGE. If you notice real close, they're are no bosses for alot of the areas such as the governor weight brackets, cam gear shaft, push rod arms, e.t.c. That's were the blacksmith shop play a part in these. If you look at how the governor weight brackets, they're bolted on to the flywheels (no bosses ) as well as the brackets for the pushrod arms and cam gears. The next (4) pictures will show these features better. The small air-cooled does not have a roller for the push rod. The cam lobe runs directly on the arm. The push rod on the small air-cooled is located on the left side and the Large tank cooled it's located on the right side.

Post 60, Notice on the Large tank-cooled, the twisted steel push rod and the way the rocker arm stand is bolted to the engine, ( Yes, that's all original ) And the cooling pins on the dry head. That design was later also used on the air-cooled IHC uprights for cooling.

Don, Are you talking about the Red one in post # 61 and 63???
If you are, You might want to rethink this one.

Dave, Yes those posts. I know you know who built the engine But, I'm going by the Cast Brass name tag that's on the engine now. Probably a wholesaler? Fire away with your answer.

Don, That engine has never been to any show in Wis. and this engine does not have a cast brass tag on it. I know all this because the engine is out in my barn.
So I will give one clue, This Co. is still in Business today, And they only built less then 175 engines. ................DH

Don and Dave -

Ok, here is a picture of the the engine Don is thinking of - when you look at post 61 (first pic) and post 63 (first pic) you can see the similarities but they are different engines....





I can sure see how they have similarities and I could easily think of either when I see a pic like the ones posted...
