    Looking at the engine number, 2AC12766CS, I would say it is a JAP 2A, dating from 1948. See this webpage for how engine numbering works.

    Year letters were used twice, hence C is 1928 and 1948. If you look on the engine cowling you may be able to find a year stamped, the stamp can be very faint.
    Below is a photo from the manual showing the carb side of engine and carb linkage.
