Does anyone know which engine was used in these Palominos?

 

No brand name mentioned in the owner's manual, but it appears to be a twin cylinder.

 

Kohler?  or Onan?  or Wisconsin?

Possibly a B&S?

That is like a holy Grail around here. They were made like an hour away from here.
1 or 2 usually show up at the Pontiac IL threahermens show on labor day weekend, the factory was very near there. The 2 or 3 that I have seen have all had Kohler K 482-532 series engines on them.

May be worth a call

​Good luck
