4hp @1200 rpm  Serial #1032
This unusual motor has 4 bevel gears in its drive train and 2 more to drive the magneto.  The design is an adaptation of an inline 2 cylinder inboard motor to an outboard motor application.  I purchased this motor in 1971 from a NJ collector, mostly unassembled and with some parts missing.  I got the motor assembled to the point of first running it in 1973 and completed the restoration by June 1974.  This motor has won many trophies over the years and still runs well.  When folks ask which is my favorite, this is the one I point to.
