Would someone identify the brand of this engine? Found several years ago somewhere in the midwest, ha!

Thanks for sharing the pictures, Jamie. Nice flywheel, which I am missing of course. I notice a couple of very small differences in the water pump.

Thanks again, Jamie.
What I notice is simply that the collar nut has hex flats and the letters in the word "NOTRE" follow an arched path rather than a straight horizontal path. It would be nice for me to know the diameter of the flywheel. The diameter of my crankshaft is 1-1/8".

Until I took this picture, hi-res, I hadn't noticed the name stamped on the cylinder. HANK GRA...
Very believable that was the name of the student who cast the jug or made the engine?

It looks like that water pump will work just fine. The trick is to make sure the end play for each of the gears to the housing is as small as possible.
The wear on the teeth is not an issue. I've seen pumps with the teeth worn to razor points, still working OK as long as the end play is small.

A good shot of grease will help seal the ends of the gears

Out of town for several days just catching up with posts !

My notes on Notre Dame engines indicate that over the years 1,2 and 4 cylinder inboards were projects in the internal combustion college, they also made outboards !
The engine in above posts is the only style I have on record, so maybe one day in the future one of the others will show up ?
