Default Easy Washer Engine

I have recently aquired an Easy engine ser. # 11548. Brass flywheel, has a chain mech on one side. Engine shut off is by holding exhaust valve open, mag appears to be on flywheel side. Appears to be mounted on the original frame from the bottom of the washer. Wrong carb, is brass and draws fuel from a remote tank like a WMB Briggs. Runs OK, sure barks when it fires. Two questions: One what is approximate date of manufacture? Two is there an adjustment to the governed speed?

Thanks in advance for any info, you guys have been helpful in the past.

on my engine
there is a screw on the back side (non flywheel )
were there is a screw with a lock nut on it
as far as I can tell the governor is at its slowest when screw is backed out as far as it can go and locked
I haven't tried this yet on my engine
just what I have observed when I have disassembled my cover plate
to re gasket it

I have a engine I believe in the same eror in which the shut off is a lever that holds the valve open. On the bottom where the gas tank holder bolts to the block with 2 bolts it leaks oil from the 2 bolts and they are tight. Is there supposed to be gaskets on them thanks.
