 5hp @ 4000 RPM  Ser. #2638

These unique outboards were offered in the late 1940's and early 50's.  They are made of two halves that are each, one piece castings from the top of the cylinder block to the bottom of the skeg.  You have to unbolt the motor into two halves to get to anything from the pistons to the gears in the lower unit.  I purchased this motor from a New York collector in 1979.  It had internal engine problems.  I took it apart and repaired it and restored the appearance in 1996.  I have had ongoing carburetion problems that remain to be solved.
