Question Alpha DeLaval twin question

I recently picked up a small 2 cylinder Alpha DeLaval engine. Here is the data plate info: Type D-600, 3.6 HP, S/N VE224---, The Laval Seperater Co, New York / Chicago. I see what apears to be a fuel pump mounted on the 'back' of the engine, and it is not connected. Does anyone know who built this pump, and if diaphrams are available for it? Does any one have any info on this engine? I have run it, br priming the carb, but I would like to run it off a tank. There are several bosses with tapped holes on the engine, does anyone know what was mounted to them? Thanks in advance ,
Andrew

This is a Stover engine. The fuel pump was probably made by A C or Autolite but I doubt that parts would be available. A new diaphragm can be made from stock that is available thru auto suppliers. I believe a parts or owners manual is available from one of the Smokstak business sponsors.

Exclamation Re: Alpha DeLaval twin question

Thank you all for the information. The engine is similar to the one Elden has posted, but there are differences. Mine is rated @3.6 HP. The cooling neck at the head has the studs at a 90 degree setting to your pictures, and the studs do double duty: they are cylender head studs as well as holding the gooseneck. The block mounted water connection is also different, as is also the carb. This engine has a hand crank, that engages a set of lugs, cast into the cramk end. Your green color is the same as mine, although my entire engine is green! Our exhaust manifolds are also different.

Stover made two other two cylinder, radiator cooled engines. According to Wendel's Power in the Past, Vol.III, they built an MV2 and an MV5. On both of these, the flywheel was on the radiator end and it was started from that end. The MV2 was rated at 2-3 HP originally, and re-rated to 3-5 HP later. The MV5 was rated at 3-4 1/2 HP originally and later at 4-6 HP.
