Funny you should say that, I have just been poking round the ignition system, only 1 plug has a spark,
:) told you, I have 4 6hp twins and they all needed coils, worth getting it going as they are great engines.

Re: 1961 Johnson 5.5hp

I like the Johnson Evinrude twins.
You will need a couple of coils i expect, bought my last ones from Texas as it was way cheaper.
I have this slightly later 6hp and I love it, powerful and quiet.

Can't remember when you could actually last buy Cellulose freely, has been banned possibly from 2012 I think, unless for pro use. The rattle can clear coat that you can buy now from "Auto Shops" today will not be cellulose, do a test with modern petrol it can be better at removing paint than the lat...

Re: anyone looking for 297 seagulls?

At todays exchange rate they are £43 pounds each.

I would say as a job lot £20 each max, cant see how they can say they are half price.

$1100 NZD nearer the mark, who ever buys them will flood the market when selling, and the price will tumble.

Worth buying for spares as ebay items though.

Re: Moment of weakness

It's a bit embarrassing when you compare the level of engineering technology in an American outboard costing $27 with the UK equivalent in 1939. A Marston OP cost $150.! 4.jpg $127.50, still cheap compared to a Marston. Perhaps we now need to have an Evinrude Thames meet, could make it Johnson Evin...

Re: Century 100 restoration.

I would think more likely drain cleaner, which are quite often Sulphuric acid. That would eat through the copper.

Re: Century 100 restoration.

Having looked back at the photos, the corrosion of the headgasket and cylinder head may have been caused by the previous owner using acid or other cleaning agents to try and clean out the water ways. This is the first time I have seen a head gasket rotted through and corrosion to the head, makes sen...
