thanks guys.. you both verified my thoughts and as soon as I know exactly what I have I'll let everyone here know. I thought they needed to be on some old A/C or Simp iron where they belong. I still have no idea what the gear reduction units are for though.

Dan there were many small units in days gone by with gear-reduction used on farms and jobsites for portable power. Way too many uses to name but many were used to power pumps and conveyors. Larry

I picked up a brand new cast iron Briggs (old stock-1986 model but still in the box) last year at local dealer for $200.00. They were clearing out old stock. The only problem is that it had a threaded shaft for a pump, but I cut a key groove and put on a split sheave pulley. I have it hooked up to an antique feed grinder that was made for one of the old pulley style farm tractors, and the Briggs handles it quite well. They really are tough old engines.
