Help - ID engine and adjust carburator

I recently purchased a "project" ... it is an old skid steer (Ford CL40) that has had the engine replaced with a Nissan engine to drive the hydro-static drive. I've been unable to identify this engine so that I can get some replacement parts. It is a straight 4-cylinder and I suspect that it is from the mid-1980s. Can anyone ID this from photos? Looks like I need more posts before I can post pictures .... coming soon.

I have been able to finally get this engine running after fixing a jammed starter and then using a the spray type starting 'aid'. I got it to run for a while once warmed up, but with the choke fully engaged the whole time. Can anyone walk me through the steps to adjust the carb so that it will start and run properly?

Image posting attempt ... again

Today's attempt to post images (does anyone know what my issue might be? How many posts do I need to be able to add pictures?)

Not sure on the pics. But, as you soon as you image them, will take a look. Familiar with those mid-80s carbs and engines. Have a couple in fact.

CG, Thanks for replying. I'll try again with the images. I have not heard back from the moderators. Let see if I can just post the links ...

Good pics, Steel. Thanks.

Dang, thought I'd get it right away.

It looks like some version of E15S (or earlier). But, there's something about it - maybe Calif or Canada or Japan or UK (Sunny) ... ???

In the air cleaner pic, the housing itself looks E15S but the vacuum motor is too close to the air housing - as I recall. I thought it was further out near the end of the intake itself. And, the vacuum motor is too big to be E16S. Plus, the 2 bi-metal temp sensors (idle adjust sensors), the black air temp sensor to their left, and the A/B valve air inlet at the bottom of the housing on the right just inside the air filter, AS ORIENTED are ALL not E16S - earlier config ... would have to be E15S or earlier. The carb barrels are not positioned the same as E16S either, so must be E15S or earlier; they are positioned 90' off.

That's the BPT to left of the air housing and the EGR underneath it. Both were parts on the E15S. (And, E16S, but they were NOT in those positions.) PCV filter looks right, but again, the orientation of entry is not what I recall - 180' off.

Sorry, can't be definitive.

Keep us posted.

Ha! Well, this was not destined to be easy was it. I truly appreciate your input; it certainly gives me a starting point. At least I should be able to replace the distributor and wires. There is really no telling what this history of this Frankenstein machine is. Frankly, I think the previous owner's toolbox consisted of a welder and a roll of electrical tape ... and he didn't know how to use either! I'm spending my time cutting out the ugly, mismatched, misaligned parts and then trying to put it together to be strong and functional. It will never be "pretty".

I still need to figure out how to adjust the carburetor. It has been a lot of decades since I've had to do anything with a carb. BTW, can you tell me where the engine ID plate might be on this thing? I've looked, but can't spot it.

The E series engines simply had a large E on the bell housing just to the right of the oil pan on the radiator-facing side (facing the radiator).

How many wires coming off the carb?

Which of these is on the carb?
AFR (2 wires)? Richer solenoid (2)? FICD (2)? IAC solenoid (2)? Mixture heater (2)?

Can you post a pic looking straight down the carb (showing both barrels and the orifices)?

What are the various #s on the ECU label?

I just had to cover everything up on the engine ... incoming snow storm. I should be able to get back out and get some pics / info sometime this weekend. I'll also have to translate the acronym 'greek' in your post
I don't pretend to know everything about carbs, but I can learn about anything.
Thanks
