This is currently on ebay item #225673521307 At first glance it looks vaguely like a Stanley engine. On closer inspection, it isn't. Note the cast iron frame and no reversing linkage. Any ideas?
Have a nice day

I dunno, man. That crankshaft, unsupported after the connecting rod, looks shady as all get-out. I'm wondering if it wasn't plugged into some other kind of machinery which provided bearing support ... like maybe a pump, winch, factory tool, or so on? It sure doesn't look like anything even vaguely automotive, I'm not seeing a variable cutoff/reversible valve gear in sight.
