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.
1946 Evinrude Speeditwin outboard underway
Our antique 1946 Evinrude Speeditwin outboard (22.5HP) pushing our 16'
aluminum 1956 Lone Star - just coming back from a morning of fishing.
Using the stock prop and stock military lower unit we hit 21.5mph via gps.

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.

1937 Evinrude Lightwin is.
