The serial number suggests early 1930s. Is it a charging engine for a large engine? It looks like a two stroke and In am wondering how it works.

The magneto lead appears to go under the the unit and emerges at the rear in the side view, do you have an image taken from the rear?

Good point. I am wondering if the engine is horizontal and the compressor is the vertical bit with the compressor valve gear on top,

We do need more photos.
