Default Ohio pushrod engine info needed.

I have recently purchased what appears to be an Ohio push-rod type engine. I have found little to no information for this type engine on the internet. Is there any one out there with any info on these types of engines? I am trying to figure out the horsepower because there is no tag. The bore is 7" by 9" stroke with 34" flywheels. It looks very similar to the 3 hp that is on youtube only much larger. If anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Bryan

Bryan, it's at least 8 hp. Info on these engines is scarce and sometimes contradictory. I have an undated brochure listing 1.5, 3, & 6hp engines. The 6 is listed with 28" flywheels and 6x8 bore & stroke. I also have a copy of a 1915 Joy brochure showing 30" flywheels with a 6x9 bore & stroke for a 6hp engine. I've seen one 10hp engine; but do not have dimensions for that engine.

I have a 6 hp. Ohio pushrod, or Joy, or Buckeye or something! As you can see I can't find much info on them either. I'm taking it to the Portland Indiana show, so maybe someone will share information on it.

Thanks to all for the help! The gentleman that I got it from thought it might be a 9 hp.The engine is VERY heavy and has a sub base. I will try to post some pics soon.
Thanks again!

We were also able to find a serial number stamped on the top of the cylinder boss just below the hopper behind the head. It is #6134
