    First super pumped for the help. I just bought a 1958 MFG with a 35 HP Johnson Sea Horse on it. Is this a 6V or 12 V motor. Can I/ow do I convert it to a single fuel line motor.
    I am sure I will have more questions but this will get me started
    Thanks,
    Tim

    Not a 58. Not a 59, but a 12 volt 1957 RDElectric! And it has the hard to find boat side wiring harness with the electric box inside the boat. Nice find!

    If you have the dual line tank, use it! It’s a solid,reliable system. Kits are available to repair them.
