A guy I know is a good source for equipment, tractor parts, etc. He's done me several favors, so he asked me to help him identify an engine he took in trade on some work he did.
It's a flat twin, and at first glance (from the next room), I figured it was a Kohler K482, etc. However, as I looked it over, I could tell it wasn't one of that series. The starter is on the Left side as you face the flywheel. There's no external governor and the exhaust goes from the cylinder ports directly into the pipes of a round muffler that sits above and to the rear of the engine. The cylinders are bolted to the crankcase, and it has a 1.5" output shaft... yeah I know... HUGE!!
I'm fairly familiar with the Briggs and Kohler flat twins, (other than the KT series) but don't recognize this, and couldn't find a data tag or any numbers anywhere (other than a casting number on one of the cylinders).
Anyway, here's some pics. I'm sure someone can tell me what it is.
