I assume it is a 2 1/2 HP model E. It would have most likely had the Webster 303K26 bracket and a K magneto. However, the early ones had the igniter fired by battery and coil or a few had the Elkhart magneto to fire the igniter.
If the flywheel counter balance weights are cast into the rims, it is an early one; other wise, the counterbalance is the recessed area in the rim.
