Have you looked at Hercules???? Used in most Diamond T's. The plug spacing is correct..

I'm with Mammoth on this, WAG is it's a Continental, just about every 2nd or 3rd manufacturer used them at one stage or another.
Engine #'s would help, IF you can find the buggers!
Sometimes hidden like Easter eggs!

I just looked at lots of Continental photos. They made many variations but nothing I can find that matches. Not to say they did not but still elusive at this stage.

Continental -no.......every one Ive seen has the distributor vertical through the head ......this includes the 1980s Hyster motors........the SVs also have a unique valve arrangement . ...........Langs second pic is a Hercules ,probably a JXD..........note the distributor drive is directly behind the timing cover .......latest SV Hercules Ive seen was in the 1970s Clark forklifts (8ton/CY 160),and it was near identicl to a WW2 JXD (Stude motor)

I have been "reGoogling", and so far nothing "quite right"! The closest is Pontiac/GMC, Continental and IHC, but I havn't found one exactly the same. I will be going out to where the engine is sometime next week so will take a few photos and get some numbers then, that might help a bit (I hope)
A big thankyou to all of those who have tried to help, I will find out in the end !
Now, off to the easter egg hunt !!!!!

The electrics and carby are a clue on US engines ......Dodges generally had Ball &Ball /Carter carbies and Autolite electrics..........the mystery motor also seems to have a round flywheel housing ,which may indicate truck or industrial.........one oddie thats not too uncommon was Waukesha ,which powered many WW2 US cranes ,as well as the FWD trucks

I looked at the full Waukesha range - that I could find - but no go.

Continentals did have models with side distrubutor - see picture above, but still no go.
