Hey Alan

Have you had a chance to tinker with or try to start your ELTO yet?
That's definitely a cool find. I can't imagine there are too many sitting around with that particular ignition conversion. It's interesting both the fact that someone still saw the value in saving that motor after its original set up failed and the fact that they were knowledgeable enough to know what particular parts to use to make the conversion.
Looking forward to hearing how well it starts and runs. I'm guessing it's basically a Speeditwin now? Good luck!

Austin,

Thanks for asking.

I live in Wisconsin, as they say the water is a little hard right now. I will wait until summer. It sure is heavy to move around.

I'm in Wisconsin as well. East side of Castle Rock Lake. You are correct when you say these motors have a lot of gravity to them.

There may be a problem with the flywheel swap as the 156 has a smaller crank than the 310-311 with a narrower taper. It would have to be a 1931 Evinrude 601 flywheel. But the same steel center hub casting was used on both engines and bored to different sizes for different engines and the timing is the same so it would be a easy fix to alter the taper. Jim Ross
