I grew up in LA. Lots of Spanish words in place names, there. Quijada is obviously a Hispanic surname from that area. I googled it and found a few Quijadas in the phone book.
You could try calling one of them. It’s not a very common last name, for sure.
Quijada means “jaw”.
I’ll go look up on Calisphere. Quijada Foundry?

it's a Quijada, i saw one in gas engine magazine a year or so ago. it is missing the shroud and maybe some other things . someone told who made it and what it was used on but i forgot. if i get time this weekend i might look it up. seems like it was made in the 40s-50s and not too many were made. i think it was on some construction equipment or maybe a drag saw.

I finally found the gems with the engine in it. the question was in dec,16-jan,17 issue and the reply in june-july, 17 issue. First it's a rare engine very few made. The company was started in 1932 as the JP & RD motor mfg. co. it was renamed Quijada in 1933 this being native american for the goddess of life. pronounced WE-SHA-DA. they made very few engines the most being made in 1936 with 180 being sold to westmoreland glass co. in pennsylvania. it said they made several different models until the company was sold to jacobsen in the mid 40s. of these models it said only about 20 of each model was made. they also sold a patent to maytag in the 1930s. it said the square fins was to give it more area for cooling and the fuel mix is 32 to 1. yours is missing the shroud and id said they had stainless steel gas tanks. this magazine reply was from a relative of a worker at the factory. I hope this helps. looks like you would have to make or modify some cooling shroud to fit it .
