Clarke Troller Outboard

These pictures were taken at a small engine show in southern California in the summer of 2003.  I don't know anything more about the engine than the comments below which are based on a conversation I had with the owner at that time.  I don't know what the advantages were supposed to be but the owner mentioned that there were problems with getting it up to an efficient operating temperature due to the cylinder being submerged.

Variable pitch prop and disk with cutouts for rope starting.
The piston and cylinder is in the bulge above the prop gear housing.
The gas filler cap doubles as a measure for the oil.  It is a two cycle.
Serial number indicates engine built in 1938.
Another view of variable pitch prop and space for starting cord.
