    Does anyone have a clear top down shot of the decals in this photo? I’d like to recreate them for a motor.

    Thanks,

    Tom

    chas56x, thanks. I was hoping for a clear shot of the original so I could try to make up something for a motor I have. The one from American Outboards is OK, but not the same as the one in the photo.

    I wonder what other changes were made in the decals of the early outboards. There were certainly many decal changes in the ads I have seen in the late ’20s and ’30s. . . 😕

    Looked through my picture files but don’t have
    anything that would be of any value to you.
    Did come across this one I got off the internet
    somewhere. The image isn’t big enough to
    read much more than the head line but it is
    an example of the variations Gary has described.

    This is the only ad I have that is anywhere close to showing a decal. . . 😀

    I read those starting instructions and saw REVERSE. What year was this? My Elto breifly ran in reverse on the first start up. I see no latch.

    All ruddertwins can run in reverse. The anti-tilt reverse latch came out in 1927 on the J model. It is a glob of aluminum on the starboard side on the front that can be pivoted over towards the port side, blocking the motor from tilting when running in reverse. One fellow ran his ruddertwin in reverse accidentally and promptly lost his prop nut and prop in the river. Perhaps the nut was loose?
