Well the last 56 Evinrude turned out great and I a made an elder statesmen one happy guy with it. So I figured it would be ehemm,, fun? to try it again.
this one was sitting for a bit longer but seemed to be well taken care of, as they all seem to have been.
other than the basic procedures of bringing a motor back to life, i was wondering a few things-\
its electric start, but i have no controls, I am jumping the start with some cables etc.,., i dont like the way its working. can i just run wires and make a switch (or no switch, just wires) for now?
this has a fuel pump and single line fuel system. i dont need the glass bowl do i? I can just replace the fuel lines and use a fuel filter i think?
can there ever be too much compression? when i have the plugs out the engine spins so nice and is throwing air, but with the plugs in its very tight. I think thats why i dont like how the starter/flyweel is working.
here are some pics thanks.
