54 Evinrude 15012 Exhaust Gasket

Postby crowsbeak » Sat Sep 15, 2018 9:16 pm

I'm working on restoring a 1953-54 15012 15 hp super fastwin serial number 14495 (not sure if that serial number range falls in 53 or 54). I am planning to replace the lower seal. I found a parts manual for a 1955 super fastwin models 15014 and 15015 (thank you Gary!) and that mmanual shows the gasket for those model numbers as a 203694. Is that the correct part number for the 15012 as well? Additionally I am looking for a bypass cover to mount a fuel pump on if someone has one they could part with see link below.

Crowsbeak,

Your serial # says it is a 1953.

The 1953-54 motors use two gaskets instead of 1 like late motors. One is thicker than the other. Part #'s 302232, and 303138.

Thank you David for the quick reply and great info! My 1953-1954 Gale 12 HP GG9016A motor had the two gaskets you mention and did not have a lower powerhead seal. Before I needlessly remove the powerhead does this motor have the seal as shown in the 1955 manual?

Thank you,

Crowsbeak

Crowsbeak,

My 53 parts book does not show a seal.

Thank you so much David! I can’t wait to tear into this motor. Are there any other gotchas on this motor besides the usual carb, ignition, lower unit seals and impeller?

The Gale has been great but is very loud. I love my 54 Fleetwin and hope this motor is as quiet as the Fleetwin and as reliable and powerful as the Gale Sea King.

I have some pictures but I don’t think I have enough posts to be able to post them yet.

You are welcome. I love mine. Here is a link to a thread regarding my Fastwin refurb.

If push comes to shove, there is a way of mounting the pump to the existing bypass cover. Fabricate an adapter plate. I used to make these, but gave it up because of lack of interest. Picture shows one on an 18hp. Seems everybody just uses a pulse hose instead.

David, excellent work on your refurb!! Frank thank you for the tip on the adapter plate. I would like it to look stock if possible but could do the plate or the Briggs pump if push comes to shove. I figured out how to add files. Below is a picture of the Motor and the Mag plate. The original coils were replaced. I found a coil chart Dan had posted and these coils are listed as 1962 possible aftermarket coils. They tested fine but are they reliable or should I replace them? The coating seems pretty soft and almost spongy. The points and condensers are getting changed.
Thanks,

Crowsbeak

You realize, of course, that no Evinrude had a fuel pump before 1955. So, any pump that you put on it will not look "Stock" to anybody that knows. Not saying not to do it though.

Frank you are correct it will not be stock. I add fuel pumps just to make it easier to move a tank from motor to motor since I run all my old outboards at 16:1. If I can find a cover it requires a little less fabrication on my end. If not there are many ways to add the pump. :D
