My BSA Gold Star (500 cc/ 30 cu in) had 42 hp, a figure which started in the '
40's.
My '57 AC Bristol had 120 hp from 120 cu in.

You can hardly compare a hand built 7000 rpm performance bike with a production outboard motor on cost alone. Can't compare it to passenger cars either. Was that rating in the post war period or in the '50s ? The AC Bristol was again a performance machine but it was 10 years later which makes a world of difference. I had a 149 ci Chrysler that put out 215 hp but that was in this century, a world away from the 40's.

7000 surprises me. Maybe that's why your arms went numb at freeway speeds. That's a lot of piston reciprocating.
Torque was under 5000, I think.
A wonderful handful on dirt or pavement!

Sure they are looking for torque because that does the work, but with an outboard motor traction is kind of iffy.

I told you I don't know squat about them but these guys say:

"Most small horsepower (up to 25 hp) two-cycle outboards built prior to the 1960s had a compression ratio of about 6 to 1."

Kind of a neat article in general.

I didn't see any spec that said it was two or four cycle but I think the outboards of that era were mostly two cycle. I did not know to ground the plug wire when doing a compression test with a coil ignition, it's not necessary with a magneto. In addition to a compression test a leak down test is a good idea.
