Not sure why this has become an issue, but it's an LUC engine from a combine. Same as in an LA tractor. It is a two cylinder, flat head, vertical built at the John Deere factory in Moline, Illinois. Cylinders fire 180 degrees apart followed by 540 degrees, just like the horizontal engines. It has a Wico X magneto and a TSX carb.
