Mine are a bit smaller! They are:
1918 Anderson. A New Zealand made and designed engine with a T connections: the rod and piston are reportedly from a T (I have not had mine apart so cannot confirm this):

And the Anderson designed and made carb too:

Doggone. This is good news and a great thread! Yous guys like gas engines! Nice pics!
Still can't get over that Witte hopper-cooled 25.
I have a very few smaller engines and should grab an ancient photo and some modern pics.
Beautiful 2-1/2 Waterloo Boy Les. A good friend has an early 7 that my son sure fell in love with.
We were all at Rollag MANY years ago when son was 12 or so and he got to know that sweetheart of an engine.
He'd set it up, pull on the flywheel and purposely fall down on the grass and the engine would start right back up.
Oh we worked with Larry's 3 horse Gade! Such fun over the years with gas engines!
The 1-1/2 to 2-1/2 LA IH was a great worker too. He "wore-in" the new bearings on the Twin City 17-28 engine.
Belt right on the tractor engine flywheel and boiling away...

I'm just amazed at how much iron it took for each horsepower.

I have always admired those. Our friend Brian has several and a Model T. We included them in our shows when we can. Your Witte reminded me of them.

It's nice to see the pictures, but thought some might like to hear these:

"Music to the ears"..... The rhythmic sounds can lull you to sleep.

Possibly saw the first, unknown about the others.

A 1939 'Wisconsin' Engine.... Followed with another video of a rescued Fairbanks-Norse. Enjoy!

Found the video of the 1906 - 20 HP Fairbanks-Norse:

Yeah, from what I read in C H Wendels big yellow bible, The Dazzle Patch engine was built by Nelson brothers, M W Savage rebadged the after the race horse, i guess a bit of pop culture from the early 1900's,
