    The Upper Canada Chapter had its Hardwater AGM yesterday. It was great to see everyone. I even came home with this very reasonably priced 1933 Johnson OA-65. It only took a little time on the workbench to get it runnin like a top.

    Great acquisition! My OA65 is one of my best running motors as well as my OA55.
    They ate very well behaved and I really like the look of the torch exhaust can.

    I went to a meet as well yesterday. The Yankee chapter had a new meet in Newburyport Mass.
    It was great to see friends and I came home with a motor as well. I got a 1922 Elto Ruddertwin with the factory Propel-o-pump kit on it.

    That is a really nice example. Hard to find them where
    the exhaust isn’t bent up or extra holes haven’t been
    added like on the one I have.

    Tubs, at least they attempted to make a nice pattern. Your exhaust looks so good it’s hardly noticeable. It is a shame, though. The exhaust is the center piece of the OA-65..

    I need to see a list of what motors you have.
    Then I can tell you the ones I’m “Certified” to work on.
    Be aware that test runs can last several years to insure
    I haven’t missed anything.

    Nice find Wayne! They are awesome little depression era motors! Built well (like everything from that era) and unique! The OA line is very cool indeed! I have passed up a couple oa-65 (I have one) and I regret doing so. Never again!

    Enjoy it!

    Tubs,
    How hard to fill in the additional holes?

    I have thought about trying to weld them
    back up but if there is any difference in
    the metal composition they will still show.
    I could paint the exhaust then but I still
    end up with it being incorrect.

    Building a whole new sheet metal exhaust is cost prohibitive unless you own the business . . .

    I believe it is a stainless steel exhaust, one could calculate the material needed and just replace the offending lower section. Since there is already a seam there, replacing and welding the section and then polish the entire unit, would be a task but hey … I have seen more work go into other motors… Who is game?
