I don`t find that exact number.My info indicates
numbers beginning with 25 were built by the Gale devision of OMC from 46-55.I find a 25-7980
which is a 48-50 12 hp.If you can give us the hp
maybe we can pin it down better.These share parts with other Gale built motors.Later motors were built by Scott Atwater still later models were built by Eska.We may get a clue to what you have by the specs.Some motors give hp,rpm fuel mix etc on a label.You may find more help at the Antique Outboard Motor Club at
