This was so far back in the hills that I won't get back there for some time. It is a saw mill. The back portion has a reciprocating blade (old crankshaft and rod attached to a saw. Thanks again for the info.
I came across this in the hills a few years back and I would like to know what it is. It has an aluminum hood and you can see the imprint of the emblem on the grille. The motor looks very similar to a Metzger 4 cylinder. Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks.
