3.2 hp @ 4000 RPM Ser. #107584
This motor is from the first year that incorporated "full jewelled power", meaning there were ball and/or roller bearings throughout the powerhead.  This is the "modern" feature that permits 50:1 fuel/oil mix.  I acquired this motor from a local person in parts in 1977.  I completed assembly and restoration in Feb. 1981.  I have continued to run it occasionally at meets since.
