The engine on this car was made by the BUDA Motor Company.Here is a photo of both sides of the 40 hp. Buda engine before I started work on it. This is the way we found it in 2011.

Bits of silicone sealant on various parts, and some grey anti-seize lubricant show evidence that MOST of the parts of the engine have been touched at some point. The reddish pink paint that covers everything may be their addition too. I’ll ask Steve when we talk again.
I have attached a PDF of a pamphlet from Buda Motors regarding our “T” engine, below.
And here is a contemporary pamphlet regarding maintenance:
