It's a Honda 7.5 approximately 1980 give or take 5 or so years.
I can't read the serial number which is what you need to get parts or narrow down the year or model.

Looks to me like that serial number is B100S-1404029.

That would imply it's a 10HP motor. Is it possible the cover is not original?

Looking at some older threads, one suggestion was "Look at the spark plug wires. They have a year of manufacturer stamped on them." (to which the original poster said "You were right!"

Remove the cowl take pics of both powerhead sides, surely someone here has the exact same 7.5 HP motor to state year of fabrication and model. Motors usually doesn't change much over consecutive years of fabrication...
