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 BEEN SOLD
