1926 Elto Ruddertiwn

Postby AusAnzani » Fri Apr 12, 2019 12:47 am

Here's a few pics of my most recent purchase, believed to be a 1926 Model G Elto Ruddertwin.

Engine and leg remain in a fixed position. Steering wheel (or similar) is used to move the rudder port or starboard as required. Quite interesting.

It has a few issues and needs quite a few parts to correct and complete, so it'll be a long term project.

Nice motor ! Looks in good condition . I find vintage OMC parts hard to find in the UK , are they any easier to source there ?

It is a nice slim gearbox. Nice find!

Is it better to over think, than not think at all?

I managed to clean it up, un-lock the engine and remove the Johnson flywheel/magneto over the weekend. It's starting to look a bit more respectable!

Will start chasing parts the US. Some of the guys on the AOMCI Forums and Facebook group can be very helpful.

If you want to restore, you have little choice.
