A month ago (8/25), I asked if anyone could identify the engine I had just gotten and I've had no response. So now I'd like to ask if anyone can point me in the direction of an answer elsewhere, either an individual or site or other newsgroup, etc.

I am too green at this antique marine engine hobby to help you positively identify your engine but I have an inkling as to what it is. If you post photos of the opposite side of the engine from a couple of angles and a couple of photos of the water pump end from different angles, I expect you will get some responses. One photo is not sufficent as many of these engines not only look alike but were made in the same shop with only minor changes in detail before they were sold under various trade names. However, some of these engines have unique chracteristics that allows one to make a reasoned guess. For instance, your engine has a grease cup in the end of the crankshaft. That was a typical characteristic of at least one common marine engine that sometimes did not have a nameplate. An additional giveway to identity of your engine may lie on the side opposite from this photo, i.e., the presence of a characteristic exhaust condenser. The type of water pump and how it attaches to the water jacket can also be a useful characteristic.

I would agree with searcher that more photos and information might be provided.
Also where was it found? What other clues or additional information do you have? If it is new to you, what did the previous owner say about it? Do you think it was used in salt water? Etc, etc.
