    Could be IHC or maybe early Fairbanks-Morris, NEAT piece, thanks for sharing!!!!!

    It may have been home built, the plate that it sits on appears to be torch cut. That's not saying that it isn't old, someone did an excellent job of building that engine, a true work of art & craftsmanship.

    Thanks for all the love ,wish I knew how to run it!

    Do a Google search for stationary engine clubs in your area, there are several in your state. You should be able to learn a little bit more about your piece and maybe get it running.

    A friend of mine builds model engines & I have sent the picture to him, I have not heard back yet. I'm giving you a link to a video of his engine that he built, his is the second one shown. This video was taken at a model engine show, the machines these people build are amazing, there are four videos in the series.

    Still unsolved?
    Here is a link to a model engineering group out of Michigan, that may be able to help you or put you in touch with someone local.
