2hp @ 700RPM  Serial #25721
This is the first year Caille offered this design outboard.  The metal box beneath the fuel tank was designed to contain four 1 1/2 volt dry cell batteries and a "buzz" coil which would make this battery ignition motor, self contained.  I purchased this motor from a New York collector in March 2000.  He had reproduced some parts including the fuel tank and battery box.  In the summer of 2009, I picked up where he left off and completed a mechanical restoration.  I first ran it on a boat in Oct. 2009.
