Curtis,
Please post a picture of the front of the cowl and that handwritten tag on the back. The Peterboro made motors serial #s were not in sequence with the US built motors.
I'll post a question on the AOMCI site to determine year for you.

I believe it’s a 1950, 1.5hp sportsman model#4425.

1948-51they were made I think..

but not sure how far it will make it, ignition parts are same as my 56’ 30hp from what I can research.. 
but…
appears the two impellers aren’t available and not sure about the rest quite yet. Just grabbed today in my hunt for driveshaft for 30hp.. 
it’s missy pull cord and odd looking handle so not entirely sure it has good recoil spring until I open up.. 
the beginning of a new venture so parts/service manuals maybe a challenge also..
plan is to replace driveshaft on 30hp then dig in to 1.5hp.. I have a large smile atm but that may disappear as I search for parts lol
love to hear anything about it I’m quite surprised it doesn’t have any dents 72 years old and really appears in ok shape but can judge a book by its cover..
either way I’m $0.00 in, I have points/coil/condenser/wire/plug so thinking a carb clean maybe a couple home made gaskets and see if the one piston wants to rip.. once I check compression I’ll post..(not seized)
