    It sounds like it's a Flink. I had one a few years ago with a vertical shaft 8 h.p. Briggs & Stratton. It was a model LMC-6A. They're made in Streator, Illinois. I think, mostly used by municipalities, at least the ones I've seen recently. I've still got the original installation, parts and operating manual with brochures from it and it shows it sitting on an early 70's Chevy/GMC. I could be way off on my ID on the unit though. Good luck.
