according to the serial number list found here...

it was built in 1925.

Posting a picture or two would help a lot, if you don't know how, instructions can be found here...

Pictures would help. At 475 RPM, I would guess at a 6 HP. If you can't get pix, flywheel diameter would help. I am guessing a rotary mag mounted on top of the governor/cam mount, correct? Type R F/M mag?
