Finally after 2 years I put this motor in the water. Buddy had given it to me and he had rescued it from the garbage. 1968 Chrysler sea king had to clean the points, tank, and carb. Still needs a little tuning but was a hoot cruising around the Guadalupe today. The John boat was my neighbors that he no longer wanted, picked it up for 20 bucks.

Notice the other sunken John boat? May try to rescue it tomorrow. River treasures.

Another friend sent me a text saying he has another old outboard that he wants gone as well. Looks 50s styling, not sure the make yet.

That looks like a great $20.00 day to me.

I wouldn't have passed up those bargains either! I need to get me a little flat bottom for when my little guy gets big enough to hit the water with me.

Checked out the sunken vessel today, its trashed. Flood victim for sure.

Very cool. I’m into vintage outboards also. My dad had a 1960 Sea King. Red and White.  Sold it and an old 12 foot Sea King boat a long time ago for 75 bucks. Still kicking myself. Currently working on a 1955 Evinrude Aquasonic 15 HP. that a guy scraped out. I went to the scrap yard to save it. Had to give 30 but it was worth it to me.

I hear yah, I sold a 1957 texas maid falcon boat with an evirude big twin golden jubilee outboard. Boat was in pretty nice shape and totally could have been pulled behind my bus. Wish I had it back now.

Vintage outboards is another rabbit hole I could, and should, go down ... after all I have a few to play with!  Courtesy of the family cottage we have a variety of oldies, like a 5.5 HP Johnson and 7 HP Evinrude, both from the mid-50s, along with a 1968 6 HP Johnson, and then there's the 1939 5.5 HP Johnson and a 1947 5 HP Johnson.  Geez.  The 1968 6HP is our main runner for the small fishing boat at the cottage.

The mid-50s motors have the pressurized fuel tank gas feed and the gas cans aren't in the best shape, but the motors themselves ran well the last time they were run.  I have instructions on how to convert those motors to a diaphragm fuel pump, but I lack the small motor service experience and confidence to tackle that project just yet.  The 1939 ran at one time, and I gave it to a friend look at it to fix a water pump problem I thought it had, and 20 years later he gives it back to me and when I tried to run it last summer, it wouldn't, and just leaked gas all over the place.  Hmph.  Another project.  The 1947 5 HP was given to me by another friend.  Don't know if it runs.  It has good compression and turns over, so things look promising.  The fuel tank is kind of cruddy inside, though not old RUG horrible, just dusty and dirty and I should clean that out before trying to light 'er off.  Pic below of the 1947 and 1939 motors.  I don't have pix readily at hand of the others, and some are at the cottage which I am still not allowed to go to at the moment, 🙁

Second trip out, mix was way better this time. Cleaned out the carb but still need to fix the pinhole in the tank. Pup came along for the ride as well.

Looks like a blast. I need to find me a little flat bottom for the rivers. Is the water above normal? Looks up in the weeds a bit

River is pretty low right now. We have got rain but not nearly enough to cause a rise. Have to be real careful and keep a sharp eye out for rocks and logs.

As an engine guy I find old outboards very interesting but haven't gotten into them. Tomorrow I am going to check out a pair of Lauson Sport King 4 cycle air cooled outboards and a Wego 2 stroker. Should be interesting. E.

Pressurized outboard tank? I had never heard of that.       From the sounds of it, looks worse than a Coleman 501.
Quote
12057dave
Pressurized tanks were used by Evinrude up to and including 1959. They used a 2 line system and the tank had a button that was pumped to put pressure in the tank. Nowadays they are considered somewhat dangerous. In 1960 Evinrude went with a single line system that uses the now common squeeze ball that brings the fuel to the engine.  Joe. That’s cool that you have 10 tanks. I have 4 myself. Besides the 15 I have my dads 1959 Golden Jubilee 10 and my current user 1957 18 and another of my dads a 1960 18. And then a 1938 Lighttwin 4.

Just curious where you guys find old parts for these motors if they need one?  I have a little 4.5 hp Merc from the early 70s that is in need of a choke lever that is apparently made of unobtanium, as I cannot find it anywhere on the planet!

Try this site. Oldmercs.com.  It may help. I looked but they did seem to have much to offer either. I just googled old 4.5 mercury parts. Good luck. Old Evinrude parts seem to be more readily available. Hope you find what you need to get the old gal running again.

It wasn't just Evinrude, Johnson had that as well, which makes sense since both were made by OMC.  They came out with that system in the early 50s when the fuel tank was moved off the motors to "remote" tanks.  The air pressure developed in the engine pressurized the fuel tank and pushed the gas out of the tank rather than it being pumped out by a fuel pump, which is the more familiar single line system.  OMC went to that later in the 50s.  We have a 1958 35 HP Johnson that has a vacuum diaphragm fuel pump, and thus single fuel line.

You could also try this guy, http://laingsoutboards.com/   I don't see choke levers listed but he may know someone who does.  He hosts an antique outboard motor gathering every winter.

  see if you can post a picture of your choke lever. If it's the one that turns back and forth, I may have one here off of a 4hp Merc from the same vintage.
