Default My "new" Continental AA7

Here is a pic of a Continental Motors Corporation engine I picked up at an auction yesterday. The info on the tag is as follows
Model -- AA7
Spec. No. -- 65
Factory Serial Number -- 85334

Can anybody tell what this engine was used for and/or any other information? Anyone have a manual? Thanks!!

Andy

Spec No 65 was supplied to G. W. Davis Corp for lawn mowers. Model AU7 (carb above engine), Watts magneto, 2 qt tank, air vane governor, special bracket for lawn mower handle tie rod, oil bath air cleaner. Model AA7 engines have the carburetor located below the engine.

Thanks for the info. I double checked the tag and it definitly says model AA7. I wonder why it has the carb on top -- Maybe a franken-motor or somebody used it as a replacement??

Perhaps someone changed the engine shroud, thence the mis-ID on the spec plate?

The spec list I have is from 1953, which is when Continental was changing over from the AA7 and AA8 to the AU7, etc. They sold a model AA7B during this period which had the carburetor on top. Perhaps they were using up some of leftover ID plates.
