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.
1924 Evinrude ELTO Ruddertwin outboard motor
1924 Evinrude ELTO Ruddertwin outboard motor. I found this in Independence
Missouri at a closed Mercury dealership of all places. It was called Nihill
Marine. Other than a rebuilt coil and timer, this is how it was found. I
did clean tank, mixing valve, and added a few missing bolts. This is my
first ruddertwin, and I'm still learning. I learned that when you shut it
down dont let go of the kill button until the motor completly stops. A few
times it started in reverse at full speed!!!! It's amazing how easy they
start, and idle suprisingly well. Thanks to Tim (AOMCI member that rebuilt
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
How to Winterize Evinrude, Johnson, and other Outboard Boat Engines HD
Complete DIY information on winterizing your Johnson, Evinrude, or other
make of outboard engine. I take you through the process of selecting a
fuel stabilizer, fogging oil, and the process of fogging your outboard
engine. You can find Marine Sta-Bil, Startron, and the other products used
in the video here: http://goo.gl/waiyTr This process is important for
extended storage as well, not just winter storage. Please note that
Evinrude Etec engines have a built in winterizing feature you can read
about in your owners manual.

In the video I said that the 1939 ELTO Ace is my oldest running motor, the
1937 Evinrude Lightwin is.
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.
1937 Waterwitch, running
After years gathering dust in an Ohio barn, this art deco outboard was
tuned up and run in the Fox River in October, 2011.
Thanks to www.waterwitch.net for info about these great motors.
