It came off a washing machine, so the guy who had it figured it was a maytag. Obviously it isn't, could hardly be more different from the standard Maytag if it tried.

I was thinking Nelson, they were used on washers too. But I can't find one to match it.

The pedal starter is missing, behind one of the pulleys the crankshaft gear is still in place, and you can see the boss for the pedal starter.

Thanks for any starting places on identifying it.

It seems from other sources, to be a Johnson Iron Horse.

Now I need to find the pedal starter and a shroud for it. And maybe a more original muffler.

Ah, well, more fun.
