    I can’t find a model number on this old motor. I couldn’t find any other photos online either. Can you please help me identify it?
    My neighbor picked it up at an auction in Ark City KS for $50. It looks like it’s all there but, no skeg?

    I didn’t find a preview of the photos. I hope they’re not too small.

    Thanks, Ken

    That motor is way before my time, probably 1920’s (???) I’ll see if I can find any more info. I’m thinking it never had a skeg.

    A quick search finds 12-14hp Fastwins made 1927-33. Still looking.
    BTW, I’m a 1937 model.

    Decals and underwater exhaust put it 1929 or later. If the tiller matches the tiller mount, it’s 1930 or later. The lower unit does not look like Evinrude, more like Lockwood, due to the curved shape. If you can post photos with the original resolution, that would be helpful.

    Tried again. It looks like the one pictured in Peter Hunn’s 3rd , pg 14 but 3 blade prop and no skeg I will get better pictures after I whip its butt and get it on a stand.

    The skeg has been removed for more speed, or broken off – The boat in this picture was designed by my Dad, Built by the Meramec Valley Canoe Company, it was called the Meraco Darb. Later Fastwin models used the Speeditwin’s tiller to control the throttle. They were some of the first outboards to use roller bearings on the connecting rods. (Thats my Mom & Dad in the Darb.)

    Thanks, fellas! There are part numbers molded in to most of the parts. I suppose they didn’t see the need for a motor model number in those days. This thing has had some work done on it the last 100 years. Did that carburetor cover come off a Packard you think?

    Thats it! For the carb cover anyway. I can see where it was roughly cut out to fit the fastwin, sort of. It looks like someone had a good time playing with this thing over the last 90 years.

    Thanks, Garry.

    Using the search feature, I couldn’t find the article on how to add photo attachments or how to edit (resize) text in this box. Also can’t figure out how to preview my post.
    Don’t know nuthin about no HTML tags and attributes as shown below this panel previous to submitting. And, that’s not the least of what I don’t know.
