ELTO Outboard 1929
In 1929 things were different no TV, cell phone, Video Games, not everybody
had a radio or
power in their homes Horse's was still being used in farm work, a lot of
did not see a outboard until the 50's. people did not know was going on in
another State's because no news on TV or computer like today no WW2, No one
heard of Rocking Roll, People worked in those days all day long. to see a
outboard in Action was a dream and everybody had to have one to power their
rowboat because it was fun and to go fishing! This outboard was built in a
different World. Some people think the old outboards don't need a battery
like some today their wrong
This outboard has a battery ignition no magneto its over 83 years old a lot
of people did not know their were built at that time their not in movies
like Model T's

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
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.

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.
