Al

Is there a pin on the back side of the cam gear ?? If so, it would be an AB-33 or 34 Bosch.

Post a photo of the mag mount.

if it is what they call a "dishpan" (shape of flywheels) which it appears to be, and it looks green. (green ones were throttle governed, but to verify a photo of the carb will help) they took the fairbanks morse type r magneto
