My 1930s bendix eclipse made in southbend Indiana. This boat motor is the model smd. I believe it's a 1938.

    http://home.comcast.net/~folke/wsb/html/view.cgi-image.html--SiteID-1961693.html my great uncle was cleaning out his garage and asked if I wanted it for doing some work on his lake house. Right away I said he-- ya I want it . He got it from a buddy who passed away years ago. It's model is the smd made between I think 1936-1938 it's air cooled so I can run it out of the water. But unfortunately no it doesn't run it has good compression but no spark I'm working on getting it running.
