Evinrude Elto Ace 1940
We made this movie while my Dad was visiting this Fall (Oct 2007). It
proves that if everything is right with an antique outboard a young person
can run them too.
1939 EVINRUDE ELTO ACE 1.8 HP ANTIQUE OUTBOARD MOTOR RUNNING
This is a 1939 Evinrude Elto Ace outboard motor I've had in my collection
for several years. Got it running so I can list it on ebay. Just had to
clean up the points, gas tank and the carb and it fired right up. It has
good compression and runs strong. Nice small motor with lots of thrust.
Good for fishing or just cruising around in your row boat or canoe. I
forgot to open the petcock for the gas so it stalled out, so check out the
next video after i turned the gas on. It runs good just may need some final
adjustments. You can use this as is or restore it for that show boat or as
a display. I like to see them out on the water being used but that's up to
who ever buys it. On Ebay 1/18/2014 item number 331110013942 THIS MOTOR HAS
1928 Elto Speedster operation with Peter Hunn
The Old Outboard Book author, Peter Hunn, takes one of his '28 Speedsters
for a run. The video begins in Hunn's shop -with a bit of history- and
moves to starting/running the vintage motor on Lake Champlain. To learn
more about old outboarding, see the Antique Outboard Motor Club's site
Archimedes A1 antique outboard 1933, 4 Hp
The pistons and pistonrings of this outboard were completely stuck by coal.
I took the engine apart with a special tool I made for that job, cleaned
the whole thing up and welded a frozen cilinder.
Then installed new rings and good upper and lower bearrings (which unlikely
enough were left on my doorstep by someone last Christmas ... Thank you!
whoever you are)
Runs like new.
I did a Johnson A45 (1929) earlier this year and also ran it behind my boat
but this one runs much better.
