I am sure someone will correct me if I get this wrong, but I think Westbend was bought by Powerbee.
Search Powerbee on the net. This does not look like a 1940s engine.

Looks power products to me
Looks neat do you have pics of the rest of it
I Googled Power Products and Powerbee for images and they all look similar. Also a lot of reference to West Bend

it is a featherweight West bend,there is an emblem with that info.The engine is old because the boat was old when I received it around 1963.My grandfathers brother told me he got it after he came back from the war,maybe Korean war.Chrysler bought out westbend.hoped to find a site or book that lists model numbers and years made.As long as I can get parts,I'll be happy.With all the engines out there there must be a parts supply somewhere.I will keep looking.i am posting a pic of label and last pic I have of mu boat in 1969.

Still have my West Bend powered go-cart. These engines had an adjustable breaker/ignition plate, so you could turn the timing up and run hard.
