1926 Elto "Super G" Ruddertwin
Test running the 1926 Elto Ruddertwin. This is a 4hp opposed twin with
battery ignition. Motor is started with the knob on top by "rocking" it
backwards. Two lines are used to control the rudder.
Since this motor uses the "Propello-Pump" cooling we rigged up two water
feed lines to back-flush it in the tank. (Pressure/vacuum cooling systems
won't work in my test barrel)
Motor is being run off a 6-volt motorcycle battery and on a 16:1 mix of
Evinrude TCW-3 and regular 87 octaine gasoline.
Hiawatha outboard motor running in test tank. First run since 1974!!
I bought this from a guys estate for $25. Hiawatha outboard motor running
in test tank. First time started since 1974 (I was told by previous owner).
After I dumped expired gas out, cleaned carb and points, she fires up. I
have side covers. They were left off while testing was done. Next is going
to be new plugs, a good cleaning, and start tracking down a recoil.
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
Evinrude E-TEC 150 HP Challenges (Full Version)
Evinrude E-TEC has been outperforming 4 stroke engines for years, with more
horse power and torque, with cleaner running quieter operation, and better
fuel economy. Evinrude E-TEC requires no break-in period, no dealer
scheduled maintenance for 3 years or 300 hours, and no oil changes - ever.
We put these claims to the test by competing in a series of challenges
against the Mercury 150HP four stroke outboard engine. Watch the video to
see the conclusive results.
1950's Elto Outboard 5HP - Running Great
Pulled apart and gave the carbie a good cleanout, re-set the points gap
(.020), and this is the result.
Great outboard, can't wait to get it out of the garage and onto the water
for some trials.
Four Strokes vs The New Direct Injected Evinrude E-TEC Engines
Boating Magazine recently examined the popular myth that 4-stroke outboard
engines are more fuel efficient than 2-stroke engines. Comparisons are
often made between older, carbureted two-strokes and newer fuel-injected
four-strokes. In those cases, the enhanced economy comes from the fuel
delivery system, not from the number of revolutions in a power cycle.
Compare modern two-strokes like Evinrude's E-TEC outboards to modern
four-strokes, and the difference is too close to call.
Karl Sandstrom, product manager for BRP's Evinrude Outboard Division,
explains how the modern direct injected 2-stroke engines can compete
head-to-head with, and in some cases, out-perform 4-stroke engines on fuel
economy. He gives some great insight into the benefits of the new direct
injected 2-stroke technology.
