Default Easy Washing Machine Engine dating & starting

My wife picked up this motor for the collection
it is missing the kick start
the flywheel is pot metal the pulley is bolted on and doesn't seem to be any space for a gear or any other starter type mounting
any ideas
my ultimate goal is cast the replacement missing parts
its a bear to get running ,I had to belt it up and hold the intake valve in
to release compression ,(it has a lot !!)

any ideas about dating it
has pot metal mag with condenser below, American bosch coil
the points are in the timer box on back of crank
its serial is 18245
and there is a number 231 below the company address info
is this the washer number ?/

On my easy washer engine I have a sprocket bolted to the flywheel and on the face of the sprocket there is a pin on each side where a starting paw fits on to and it has a small coil spring that holds tension on it which engages on to the separate kick starter assembly.
