Photo Flint & Walling Hoosier? Alamo?

Here's a neat one, I think this is either a Flint and Walling Hoosier or Alamo upright, based on what I've been researching and Wendel's Book. Article in GEM seems to indicate Flint and Walling and Alamo may have worked togther. What do you think? See page 176 of Wendel's book. The "U" shaped fuel connector, and side rod arrangement seem to be unique matching features.
Thanks,
Scott

Scott, believe Alamo made them and some were marketed by F&W. Here is a pic of the upright Alamo.
If you search for Alamo Lathrop Mo there is a pic of a complete one like yours.

Scott, finally was able to upload this pic. Finished it earlier this year. It has an Alamo Victor tag. Used a F&W catalog page to put it together.

Is this an operating manual or advertising booklet?

Dave, this is Alamo Bulletin No. 32 booklet. It features the 2hp, 3hp, & 6hp Alamo "Vertical" line of engines. It is 6 pages. Neat little booklet that I recently stumbled onto. Thought I'd find this old post and share it.
There are two staples which are nicely centered into the spine, it could be factory original, but would have to have it looked at by a pro.
