Re: 70's/80's Evinrude 2 hp OB - Worth fixing?

Yup, an in line spark checker is on my shopping list.

I spent some time the other day on the motor. Lubed the pull cord assembly so it works properly now, poured some gas in the tank, gave it a...

Re: 70's/80's Evinrude 2 hp OB - Worth fixing?

Yes, the tag is missing. I matched the motor with the drawings (as you suggested) and it looks to be a 1981 model.

I gave it a pretty good look today. It looks 100% complete, no missing or...

Re: 70's/80's Evinrude 2 hp OB - Worth fixing?

No such luck. Gave it a thorough look and didn't find any model, serial or other markings.

70's/80's Evinrude 2 hp OB - Worth fixing?

I've just acquired an old Evinrude 2 hp outboard that I'm told won't start. From its appearance I'd guess it's from the late 70's or early 80's. The engine cranks easily but the pull cord is...

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

It's a scam. If you contact them (I did) they insist that you contact them using your email (not via Craigslist). If you search around you'll see that the boat is supposedly in 3 or 4 different...

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

Re: FREE, or close to free!

That's not a bad looking boat. If he donates to charity he'll only get a small fraction of it's worth in tax benefits. If he understands that somebody could come in, pay cash, and get a really good...

Re: FREE, or close to free!

Nearly every boatyard and marina has abandoned boats they'd love to get off their property. At times, when the condition is so bad, they have to pay to have the boats disposed off. These boats can...

Re: Opinions on ex-racing boat

Re: Wet balsa core repair options?

I've owned a lot of boats in my 50+ years of sailing, but all were on the West coast and in areas that never had freezing temperatures. I have to say, that the boats I've seen here on the East coast...
