1964 Evinrude pressurized gas tank?

Your said you got a new tank, did you also get a new fuel line? You said you got what you think is the correct connector, if you, by mistake, got one for a newer Mercury/Yamaha it will not work, it will suck air at the connection. If we have eliminated the line and connector as the problem, it may ...

1964 Evinrude pressurized gas tank?

Hi I have a 1964 Evinrude sportwin 9.5. I bought a normal plastic 6 gal gas tank for it with what I think is the correct connector piece. I only got it to run for about 5 min but as soon as I got to full throttle it died. Then I started it back up and it only ran for about 2 min and died, then again...

While in use sometimes it will stop working and when I press the button to make it go or put it in continuous mode there is a crackling noise coming from the foot pedal.

12' Sears V-Hull modification Pics added

I have pretty much the same boat and the exact same motor. I also wanted to add a bow mount trolling motor and casting decks front and rear. My boat has a 560 lb weight limit and I'm 225 so after the mods I realized I would be pushing very close to the weight limit with just me in the boat. I'll be ...

weight capacity issues of 12' v hull

Hi guys. I am modding a 12' aluminum blue fin v hull with a weight capacity of 564 lbs passengers and gear. I would like to add decking (2x2 frame 5/8" ply) both bow and stern and two pedestal seats. I also have a bow mount trolling motor, battery, 9.5 hp Evinrude, and a gas tank. I'm about 225 so I...

12ft Valco (V-Hull) with 15hp Yamaha

Well it looks really good and the 2x2's save some weight over 2x4's too, great job. It looks like you painted the inside of the boat and the wood framing all with the same paint, what kind of paint did you use? Nice pig in that last pic by the way I would love to fish the delta some day.

12ft Valco (V-Hull) with 15hp Yamaha

Awesome job on the boat I really like it. What kind of wood did you use for your supports under the decking? It looks smaller than 2x4's.
