Wow I thought I had the oldest engine project with my 1962! you have a project there, very cool!

My sailboat may get this 2.5 HP 1936 Erinrude Sportwin 2 cylinder short shaft that I got running, its super interesting how simply these motors were designed :) vid here

Is that tiny brass guy a little water pump?

And if you want to get a new starter that is marine rated (i.e. spark sealed so you don't explode) I got mine at north county rebuilders in Escondido, CA, they ordered it from a guy that did a special nose for it so it mounted to my old block. Pics of mine old vs new and installed

I also see you are doing pulley steering, I am doing the same but mine are routed down both sides of the boat.
