Finished on the A-80 Johnson to the point of running today.
Started on the second pull. Only ran it about 20 seconds
as it's a fish out of water. Further running will probably
be next May
May order a decal and "bondo" up the tank where it goes,
and leave the top "A Naturale", and try polishing it if
I get some better equipment. The little two inch buffing
wheel in my drill don't "hack it"!
The last hurdle on this "well used" Johnson was the prop.
The shear pin groove inside the prop hub was wore
about twice as deep as original, causing the prop hub
to rub on the gear case.
Ended up making a new groove 90 degrees to the old one.
Seemed to do the trick!
