    Tom, This is not the motor that I mentioned looking at when starting this thread. Instead I’m getting an original 1939 Mate Model 4263-033XX. Thanks, Jim

    No problem, Jim. I was just surprised that nobody mentioned the freeze plug information.

    I purchased a nicely restored Mate a short time ago and quickly discovered two problems. The serial number plate was from a Ranger and the freeze plug appears to be from a Sea King Midget based on the numbers. Thanks to the resourcefulness of Doug Penn, it now displays a proper Mate serial number plate on it. Since I traded a couple of motors for it that were not all that expensive to me, I am pleased with it as is. I quickly point out the freeze plug flaw when I talk with others about it. Regardless, I still like it, and actually, that is all that counts in the long run. You have to please yourself.

    I should have mentioned that. Of course that would be covered on the Mate. . . šŸ™‚

    Got my Mate today. Very happy checking it out and seeing the matching numbers on both the ID plate and freeze plug. Great seller. I did some motor swapping too along with some cash and was able to get the one I wanted. Thanks all for your informative replies. I’m anxious to learn more about these old outboards.

    I’d never realized, ’till I saw this post that the 1960’s/70’s Evinrude one banger (like so many others) was named after an earlier model!

    I have a 1941 Evinrude Elto Mate. What would be a new spark plug that could be used for this engine? Also what are the torque specs, if any, for the spark plug?

    The Champion J17LM is a short, non-resistor,
    lawn mower spark plug that is easy to find
    and will fit under your gas tank.
