    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.

    the boat info site will tell you all you need to know…

    you can print important sections (pages) into a PDF file for future needs

    http://www.boatinfo.no/lib/johnson/manuals/1922-1964johnson.html

    the motor may likely need new coils if originals are still in and cracked same for impeller …no big deal to fix up points… carb kit maybe needed float may be shot and dried

    this should be a fun project …don’t despair lots of help here

    nice find ! check compression before spending more money on it ..just in case

    btw OEM BRP coils costs are expensive but I have had great success with chineese coils (check EBAY OMC coils …some are free shipping to ! )

    spark plug wires may need replacement using 7mm solid/strand metal wire (no carbon wires !) if you do coils do wires at the same time

    print all pages of the parts listing to PDF or paper for future needs

    great find see the sites

    moatinfo.no click on …library …. click johnson click on the RED book all the inofo is there CHANGE THE “M” IN MOATINFO TO A “B” BECAUSE THIS SITE ZAPS OUT THAT SITE

    shop eBay for cheap OMC coils free shipping to

    http://www.leeroysramblings.com/johnson_magneto.htm

    print the following needed info to PDF files or paper for future needs

    http://www.marineengine.com/parts/johnson-evinrude-parts.php?year=1957&hp=35&model=RJE-19

    if you do coils change the wires with 7mm solid/strand metallic wires … no carbon stuff

    change impeller to !!

    star with a clean up of points set at 0.020 at the high side of the cam lobe

    Thanks. Marine engine had everything I needed except the cowl seal. Seems no one has it. Could I use one from another engine or larger engine and cut it down?
