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):

Lovely brass governor:

And the Anderson designed and made carb too:

I also have a "J" Lister but he is trucked away in a shed. This is the same model (but not my engine):

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...
Since I lost my mind mind, I feel more liberated
