The ones with the motor on top the head moves. With the motor on bottom the bed moves so while the 4-posts look to be of the same dimensions they are different planers. Parts compatibility with other no-name Taiwan 15” planers is said to be good with these generic planers. A lot of tool dealers branded them but they re pretty similar if not the same in some cases.

Do you know of any of the no name brands or model similar that I could try and research more? Didn’t some of the grizzlies have the motor below?

From that era you ve pointed out the Delta 380 s and all of her assorted, and MANY Cousins, which did share a lot of capability for cross use of parts, but I ve not seen this 4 post machine with the motor below. Does it look as if someone has re-rigged the motor to be out of the way? If so I imagine there will be several holes for bolts removed on the top left surface as you look at it as in your pic.

Beyond that I don t know, what you have there, but it isn t what I m used to seeing.
