Hi Jonesy,
I'm responding to your message on my message board.
I'm not sure what information you need. The motor you have is a Fuji .15 gas powered toy outboard that was made in the 1950s. It's modeled after the Mercury Mark 55 and are pretty cool looking motors. They were not, however, good running motors. The big problem with them was their size. They had so much compression that when you tried to pull start it the wooden boats of that era couldn't handle it and the transom would rip off!
They were made as air cooled and water cooled. They came with a recoil starter and also with a wrap around the flywheel starter.
The Fuji also came in different sizes. The most notable is the Brown and white one that has a flip top lid over the flywheel.
I hope this answers your questions. Is there anything else you wanted to know?
