    For anyone interested- This is a 1963 West Bend Shark-o-matic 800. It was basically an 80HP outboard motor that was mounted sideways with one motor mount in the front and adapted up to a manual lift outdrive unit. They only made them for a few years and parts seem to be rare. I pulled it and sold it the whole system. I have re-worked the boat and it is powered by a 75HP Johnson outboard now. Thanks-
