Default Clinton E65LH - Tell me about it

Friend dropped this little engine off this afternoon, decal says E65LH, paperwork says E65 and available as CW or CCW rotation, wild guess is the LH stands for CCW, but that is a guess. Friend seemed to think it is a boat motor, I see nothing in paperwork indicating an application. The little cone thing is the muffler, or would it be loudener? Seems odd that "muffler" would be designed to catch rainwater? So what is it? Anyone know the application, guestimate on age, yada yada yada?

The megaphone 'ear splitter' tells me it is a kart engine. They were cheap to buy but at the time the Homelites, Power Products and McCulloch engines would run rings around them.
I'd say early 60's. A classic kart collector might pay good jing for it.

5.2 hp @ 6500 RPM. That megaphone would be doing some real talking at that point.
Neighbors would love you. Even more if you had a pair of them wound up.

Thanks guys, I let friend know that his dad was thinking about him that year he really wanted a go kart for Christmas. He is having to do the sad clean-out right now and this was squirreled away under a workbench.

Wow! Now that's a rare motor! I'd love to have one of those e65's but they're out of my price range... That's a kart specific engine you have there and go kart people pay stupid money for stuff like that
