    An older couple posted a freebie ad last year I end up with a free 9.5hp MQ-11 after nobody took them up on the offer πŸ™‚

    Could not wait to tackle my winter project sitting in the basement so I popped the flywheel and found a nicely cracked coil πŸ™‚ and one green OMC coil

    everything is clean under the FW

    scoped the cyl. wall and they look ok compression #s to come later πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    Interesting motors and good runners when they are right; but a lot of rubber stuff to go bad. They can be a challenge. We used to call them “clams,” because of the way it will kind of all fall out when you take the midsection sides off.

    Long live American manufacturing!

    Yeah, only worked on a few of them over the years, but surely experienced the explosion of bits and pieces when the halves were split….Someday, will try another one, but will be better prepared to catch the stuff before it disappears…

    I have never had to do much work on these (4-5) and I am not to inclined to take one apart other than electricals, carb, impeller and gear case .

    if ever I get one that is suffocating itself due to exhaust fumes I may just try to fill the lower cavity with a can of expansion foam in a can .. just above the gearcase where you can see the
    big rubber gasket πŸ™‚

    anyway , here are 2 nice pictures as to why that older couple decided to get rid of it. πŸ™‚ somebody had worked on it because I found the S shaped carb linkage at the bottom of the pit

    still not certain if this motor went for a swim and what the innards look like because I see some sand inside the lower section. πŸ™ cyl look ok no rust
