Hi guys, this engine is one of my good friends engines, and we just do not know what it is, can someone please help find out what brand it is? And is it a marine engine or a stationary engine? Any help will be great.

It's tough t see if there is a water pump.
Also, tough to see what kind of timer it has - a timer should be on the camshaft somewhere.
The crankshaft looks too long on both sides for a marine engine, and the base is really high for a marine engine.
The long shaft ends are more typical of a stationary engine.
There would be no water pump, if the engine used a thermo-siphon system for cooling, thus making it a stationary engine.
The gear end of the crankshaft looks to have a thrust bearing, but again a bit difficult to make out.
Not many votes in favour of it being a marine engine.

miro,the key in the cam gear looks like it could be removed and rotate the gear half way and put the key back and the engine could be run the other way. what do you think?

It might be OK for the valve timing, but you'd have to look at the ignition timing too.

The intake valve has to be atmospheric so that it doesn't have to be retimed, the exhaust cam is moved 90 degrees to reverse rotation. This engine may have been ignitor fired from the looks of the spark plug adapter. I don't see any linkage and no timer, could it have been a piston trip?
