I am away from home, so don’t have my literature, but in bygone days, EAO meant made by Evinrude.September 25, 2020 at 11:55 am #217260
The thin brass tube going down through the center of the carb from the top is the idle tube. All of the idle fuel comes up through that tube, which has very small passages which get clogged easily. So make sure it is squeaky clean. Also, the slow speed mixture needle on that carb works backward from what you would normally expect. Screwing it “in” makes it richer.September 23, 2020 at 11:51 am #217165
I tried sealing them many years ago with poor results. Haven’t tried with more modern sealants, so no experience on them.September 22, 2020 at 12:52 pm #217086
Lacking any better theory, is it possible that Champion changed the plug length? I just measured a couple of old J-4-J nd J-6-J plugs and they are 2-1/4″ from gasket to end.
Those funky non-existent model numbers have come up before. My worthless theory is that Gale ran out of motors and had to import some from Canada.September 22, 2020 at 11:53 am #217077
Ron, did you understand the maverick spark suppressors? They will show open secondary if not tested properly. There are two ground wires on those coils, one for the primary and one for the secondary.
The secondary connects to the maverick spark suppressors. You must connect your meter between the spark terminal and the SECONDARY GROUND WIRE—not to the armature plate as you normally would..September 22, 2020 at 11:42 am #217076
Hm.m.m.m, I suppose it is possible that somebody has replaced the original “Sparky” boots with the newer, longer OMC boots. I can’t say what that might result in.
The 1962, still has the intake silencer, right? (It was eliminated for 1963). But it can be removed or gotten out of the way to get the carb off. Sorry, too many years have passed since I’ve done one to remember the exact details. But I sure would remember if powerhead removal was required. Been there, done that too many times.September 22, 2020 at 9:57 am #217064
There is something unsaid there. I’ve serviced dozens of those motors and never had any trouble getting the plugs out. Also, the carburetor can be removed without unbolting the powerhead.September 22, 2020 at 7:14 am #217048
Really? I’m surprised it is so rare. But it makes sense, I suppose. Long shaft boats/motors weren’t too common back then.September 22, 2020 at 7:00 am #217046
That was my thought, for whatever it is worth. Water damage could be why compression is down on #2.September 21, 2020 at 9:47 pm #217025
Has anybody suggested water getting into a cylinder?September 20, 2020 at 11:06 pm #216968
As you were measuring the secondary resistance, where were you measuring? See the info concerning maverick spark suppressors. You may not have bad coils after all.
