Engine photos were sent to me and this is what I know about it: Plate says: F-G, Boston; stroke: 3"; bore: 4"; no governing, had a hand lever to butterfly on the carburetor; flywheel width: 2-1/8"; flywheel diameter: 15"; it has rollers on the lifters. Any insights? I have a photo that won't upload, so you can email me if you would like to see it. Thanks!

Erin,
Here is a copy of a previous post by Ernie.

F and G was Fitzhenry and Guptil (spelling)
They made orchard spraying equipment. Most are from Cambridge but some have another city name near Boston. Can't remember which right now. Yes they do look like marine engines. They are quite common in New England. Some are headless and some have removable heads. Most had a large drip oiler with a large single glass and 4 or 5 needle valves to adjust the individual oil lines. I havn't seen one with a govenor. They had a rather nice brass carb with a fine adjustable throttle quadrant.
Hope this helps
Ernie
