This motor is from the first year of production.  It features unique styling that requires opening the top cover to access the flywheel for starting, to get to the gas tank cap, and to choke or adjust the carb.  When the cover is closed, nothing is accessible.  It requires a 6 volt battery to have spark since it does not have a self contained magneto.  I purchased this motor in 1979 from the original owner from New Jersey.  I first ran it at a meet in 1981 and have used it occasionally ever since.
