No, I have no idea.
And I have been too lazy to post the pictures on AgTalk. I bet somebody on here knows what it came out of.
For those curious ones, it is a 4 cy overhead valve engine, aluminum head with the intake manifold going down through the aluminum valve cover (as opposed to being on the exhaust side or opposite side of the head) with a down draft carburetor. Attached to a manual aluminum housing transmission. Oh and Bosh generator and starter.
I would think it surely is an automotive engine but with the carb and intake sitting up high like that I don't think it would fit under the hood of most compact cars or pickups. A small cab over truck maybe? Don't know.
