Similar, but the bottom valance matches the Maxwell.

Marvin, have any views of the motor or are you positive it's a Model A as they didn't have a magneto.

After closer inspection, I agree that Layden is correct on the Maxwell observation.

Cannot really tell for certain from these photos. What is the back side like where the hoses are connected? And has it been modified any? And closeups of the mountings would help also. There were several similar after-market radiators for a model T being made back then, and a few cars like Maxwell and Paige that used something similar. To my eye, owning a Paige and therefore looking at almost anything Paige I get an opportunity to see, it is NOT Paige. I have known a few people with Maxwells and have seen a number of them. It does look very much like a Maxwell to me. Just from the familiarity of the angles and curves between the core and shell.
Again, there were several after-market shells with or without radiators. Lawco and Ames were among them. But from what I can see so far, I would guess Maxwell. I also would like to see a couple photos of the motor. Could it be Maxwell?
Interesting rig. It could be worth preserving or restoring itself as a bit of ranching history.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

Wayne, the back part of the motor was hooked up to some type of transmission I have never seen before. It was not Model A. The frame was a cut off Model T frame. The magneto was attached to the side of the motor. Definitely some engineering going on there.motor 3

I found a photo of a Maxwell motor and transmission and this one looks the same!! I believe this one is a Maxwell motor/transmission.

Definitely a Maxwell Model 25 Motor and radiator. Probably 1916 or later teens. Here is my 1915. It has an aluminum intake. Yours is cast iron.

It was a slow slow sneak Wayne. I tried 3 times to get the photos to upload. Glad I finally made it.
