P.S. That is a model 4438 Fastwin - I had trouble with the rubber motor mounts twisting out of place and put a very short sheet metal screw in each to help hold them in place. It uses a Tiltson MD carburetor. The low speed adjustment adjusts the air. The idle tube supplies a set amount of fuel. It is also easy to clog up with stale oil. The gearcase was also used on the '49 and '50 QD Johnson. . .
Living my dream because Reality is too expensive . . .
I have been doing some more reading and the 1950 Evinrude model 4438 is 14hp Should look like the picture attached when it is finished Hopefully it will get the boat up on plane...no trim tabs on the Woodie
That’s the same motor I learned to boat on, mine was on a 1930 Thompson 16’. Performance was fine for a big boat and small motor. We had a speedo on it and I seem to remember 15 mph, maybe 18 tops. My boat can be seen in the pictures page here. I still have both but have not run the motor in many years.
