From everything I see the whole ped is made by Puch. Should be a plate on the fork yoke that will say made in Austria. Puch used a 1 hp, 1.5hp and a 2 hp engine. I do not know if all three were used on the Sears brand. Correct me if I am wrong but the output drive sprocket was different sizes based on the engine size. 18 teeth on the 2 hp, a 16 or 15 tooth on the 1.5hp and 13 or 14 on the 1 hp.
