Just for the heck of it, make sure your points are clean. You might also want to take the wires off your points and hook up a meter and see them open and close on the meter. No kill switch on the throttle grip.July 15, 2020 at 12:10 pm #208676
I passed on a Wankel engine at a garage sale. Guy said it was from a sled. Had an OMC coil attached. Kicking myself.May 29, 2020 at 6:51 am #204290
I have a 2017 Etec 115 on my fishing boat. I feel I was left out in the rain. Also I noticed that Evinrude dealers were far and few as where mercury dealers are like dollar stores. Every corner. I feel bad for the small Marinas that were Evinrude only. I think that the Etec is a good product, I wonder where the ball was dropped.?May 24, 2020 at 7:59 am #203883
I would pay attention to that pivot pin on the clutch dog fork. It might have missed it’s seat if it is of that design. with the lower unit off and in a vise you should be able to spin the drive shaft and put the shift shaft thru its paces.May 20, 2020 at 3:23 pm #203634
Bypass cover it is! Thanks.May 11, 2020 at 3:36 pm #202797
I had Blue Streak points that had the rivets loose. I would tighten the wires on and the insulator would move ever so slight and ground out the points.March 3, 2020 at 10:43 am #196520

I have a spun hub on my 10 HP also. Bought a new prop. Chances are getting one repaired will be close to a new prop. I think I remember some one used gorilla glue to repair their spun hub.January 30, 2020 at 11:56 am #193547

The Plot Thickens! I removed the lower unit my 1950 Scott Atwater 16 HP and made some discoveries. My lower unit is from a 1952 (3925) Model. I also found that the splined coupler between the upper and lower drive shaft has a crack in it. I don’t think that crack is suppose to be there. Can some one please verify my thought before I squeeze it with vise grips and get it welded. And check out the connection between the crank and the shaft. Who came you with that? ( I Know, Rocket Scientists) Also , I’m still looking for an impeller 509-5100 years 50-54. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks, Matt.

Sharing some info, I got the correct tool to drop the lower unit. It’s a Bristol wrench.Scott used these fasteners to hold the lower unit on and also to hold the power head to the lower unit. Like an allen wrench but just a little different. The size was .251.

Thank you thank you thank you! ( I feel like Gomer) This really helps a lot. Took the covers off and found NGK A-6 plugs. Had spark on #1 cylinder. Pulled the fly wheel. Coils are toast. Originals. So now , I”m on the hunt for the usual suspects. The motor looks like it’s from outer space. So cool. Can’t wait to run it on the lake next year. Again, Thanks for the help!
