Stephen,

I am not an expert here, but I think that is for marine application. You may want to ask him moderator to move this to the Marine engine forum and you may get more responses.

My first engine is a U.S. Falcon twin cylinder with the reverse gear, it was given to me by the original owner, it was his first engine, used it for duck hunting. Yours is the first single cylinder I've seen with a reverse gear. You should be able to find info on the company, I believe they were in Oshkosh.

its a inboard boat motor, a lot of them were without reverse gear like j.b. indicates, these are called direct drive models. "aim-start-go"

It runs well, has a very pleasant sound. I had to rework the head, made a new valve guide, replaced one valve, it was stuck. The Edison-Splitdorf mag was weak, was able to fit a new coil, I think it was from a Fairbanks mag.
