This thing showed up at the doorstep of a friend of mine. It appears to have a governor of sorts on the front end. No other markings on the entire engine except casting numbers. We would like to put a name on it and date if possible. Any help would be appreciated. Thx !

Whatever it is, it looks neat! And a turbo!?! Cool.

And my money is with Layden.
I imagine other trucks used T head engines,but most of those were assembled trucks,and that does not look like those engines to me.
Piece-Arrow trucks were frighteningly expensive.Only ever ran onto a few odds and end parts,and my God,werw they fabulously made...
That engine won't last long if for sale.

Thank you, thank you, thank you !!! I'm not sure if the engine will be rebuilt or put up for sale, but at least we know what it is and that's the first step. Thanks again !!

it looks like a Buda tractor engine from the 1910-1920 period, or maybe a Beaver.........

All those neat photos and not one of the drive side of the flywheel. Wish things like that would show up on my doorstep! :-)

NOT FOR SALE says the owner. He will have it rebuilt and restored for his collection. Thanks to all for your help and interest.
