Can you Identify this Engine?

The id plate was ripped off and we have no idea what engine it is. It seems to have some type of Japanese or Korean on the block. I can't seem to find out by looking at the regular Yanmars.

Thank for your help in advance.

The pics aren't great, I had to crop them to get them to fit within the acceptable parameters.

Looks like a YSB-8 to me.

The yellow refill cap looks like one on our Yanmar. What truck did this one fall off of that made the plate come off?

Don't be fooled by the gearbox plug - that is made by the transmission supplier not by Yanmar.

The chain sprocket is of interest to me - I can't remember the last time I saw an engine accessory driven by a chain.

Seems an horizontal cylinder Yanmar similar to this one on a Mirage28 I've transported about two years ago:



Very noisy, vibrates like mad and rather slow...

I believe the sprocket to be related with a hand cranking mechanism. Note that on the engine in my video clip you can still see the shaft where that sprocket must have been once upon a time.

Further to my previous post, here it is:

Almost sure it's a Yanmar YSE12

Looks like my YSE8. Is it a 1 cyl? Could be a YSE8, or YSE12. Also could be YSM8/12 or YSB8/12.All pretty much the same engines. Made between 1976 and 1980 or so. Pictues of the top would be more helpfull.
