Default Gray 1 cyl 2 Stroke Gas Year & Info?

BTB a Gray. Came with 16' nice unrestored early 1900s fantail launch (unknown builder) but possible, not original. Possibly out of the upper mid-west. Cylinder head # 145R over 12567 on a brass plate on side of the cylinder, and raised "6-13" on cylinder casting. The "5" in 145R is actually a backward "S". Confusing. Hopefully future centerpiece of our new little Maritime Museum. Thanks, Rick

Thank you for the information. Now to find and assemble all the piece parts, and see if she'll run. Rick
Mine has the same water pump from Syracuse, New York.
Be careful with the gasket between the block and the crankcase as it seals the fuel/air incoming mix.
Also, you need a quick ignition by regular ignition coil as a buzz coil has its dwell too long.
