    "I can't read what the small data plate on the left side reads. Doubtful you actually twisted off the flywheel nut. Likely the nut on top of the recoil housing broke. Don't think it will be a 5 HP but not real good with non OMC motors. Think it will go larger due to what looks like a shift handle. Also looks like may be a long shaft. Firestone (the tire company) never really built their own motors. First made by Champion out of Minneapolis, Minnesota which sold out to Scott Atwater. Likely made by Scott- Atwater but West Bend and later Chrysler also made motors for Firestone."
