Trailer looks good!... You done a great job on it!

A 55 gal' plastic drum would work too... I've seen guys make fenders out of them to cover the front tires on tractors.

Take a hammer and hit near the end of it.

Thank you very much. Also got one problem taken care of today. Got the nut onto the crankshaft. Wooot. Fiddled with it again this morning and got ticked off at it. Threw the motor in the back of my truck and took it to West Georgia Marine. Asked them what they would charge me to run a die down the threads to clean it up. They took care of it and didn't charge me anything. Now I can finish putting the motor back together.
Onward and upward :P

I was trying the hammer thing yesterday and they wouldn't budge. Guess maybe I was afraid to hit them to hard. Will give it another go round tomorrow.
And thanks so much on the trailer compliments.

Damn. Had todays update all written out then the window closed on me.
Built a motor stand today that will hold both outboards and the trolling motor.
Then I finally got the Ted Williams put back together. I'll tell ya, who ever designed how that thing goes together had to be on crank or something.
Did a compression test on it and got a solid 90 out of it. Question.. Shouldn't it be between 100-120?? Or is 90 OK for a 4.5 HP motor? Foto to follow.
Tomorrow I'll see if the new points and condenser gives it some spark then spray some carb cleaner in the carb and see if it will fire up

Be careful what types of sprays you are using to test fire any engine. Especially a 2-stroke. Most starting fluids and cleaners are not oil based and therefore can cause cylinder wall and ring scoring due to insufficient lubrication. Even just a quick test fire can cause issues. Best thing to do to test run a 2-stroke is to put some gas/oil premix into a spray bottle and use that.

You didn't happen to notice any burs or similar on the crank shaft threads? Willl the nut go on at all?

You might consider running a small needle file along the threads and following that checking if the nut will work - cheaper than a die.

Thanks for the tip. I appreciate it. I did try with carb cleaner today and it actually fired for just a second. Thanks again.

I couldn't see anything wrong until I took a photo that I could zoom in on and a file did the trick. The nut went on easily and the motor is now back together and waiting on some gas.
My only delima with it right now is finding the correct fuel/oil mixture for It. So far the closest manual I've found is one model number down from the actual. It says 24:1 but I want to make sure that would be correct.

24:1 is probably about right. I know on my old 1955 Rude I had it was originally 16:1 but with the development of TCWIII they released a publication to switch to 24:1 unless you were still using 30w as your primary 2-stroke oil. I always mixed mine a little heavy on the oil still just for the added piece of mind. I was fine with the idea of replacing plugs a little sooner rather than damage cylinder, pistons, rings, cranks, bearings, etc.

I keep feeling like I'm not making any progress but I know that little by little this old goat is doing something. Especially since I'm out the every day working on it.
The past couple days I've made new transom corner braces and a new bow top brace. Tomorrow I hope to have those all riveted in place.
Today I also got new SS U-bolts in place on the transom for tie-downs to the trailer. (Pic to follow)
Also as soon as I can come up with a 1 3/8" hole saw I'll be able to get the Aft anchor pole light mount installed.
That wouldn't fit on the old beat up corner brackets, so... in come the new bigger ones I made from an old aluminum street sign. (Along with the new bow brace).
(Sure wish I had A bending brake though).

I hate having to live off of a disability pension, but the up side is I have somthing to do that I love doing. I just have to wait longer for the $$$ to come in and scrounge more :) little by little this boat is getting there. Pushing hard to be fishing in her by spring.

If you haven't found out what the boat is yet, I have a boat almost identical as far as I can tell and mine is a late 60's or early 70's sea nymph. I can find the exact model tomorrow as it's written on the side, I just can't recall lol.

I love the build.

Right on. I've suspected a sears but not positive,early 60,s or so. One of the things I've been going by is the length of the splash guard on the sides. Not to many of them that short. I would appreciate what you come up with. Thank you.

I guess it's time for a little update.
I made new corner plates on the transom and got the pole light plug-in base installed on one of them. Then I reworked the bow brace plate. I started to make a new one then I got to thinking. Usually a bad idea for me. I straightened the original out as best I could with a piece of 2x4 and a hammer. Then I broke out some Bondo with glass strands in it and coated the top of the plate to fill in any of the dents and dimpples that were left. Let that cure till the next day then sanded it smooth. Cleaned it with mineral spirits then sprayed self etching primer to it. Then temp mounted the Nav light right up front.

Then last payday I picked up a couple of steel 55 gal drums. Got me another piece of 2x4 and near one end I drove a nail thru it. Measured 9 inches from that nail and drove another nail thru. I then flipped one of the drums upside down then took my 9" nail ruler and hung it on the lip of the drum and walked around it letting the other nail scratch a line around the drum. Yep... got me a line to follow with my angle grinder with a cutoff wheel on it. Laid the drum on its side and just rolled it while I cut. Next, I cut that part right up the middle.
Have any of you priced new fenders for a trailer? Tractor Supply had flimsy plastic ones for $40.00 ea.
I just made two for a grand total of $10.00. :P :wink:
BTW they are a perfect fit for 12" tires. Got them screwed onto the trailer frame today. Took the trailer to a salvage yard and got them to weigh it for me. 240 lbs total for the completed trailer.

Some New pics coming right up. And as always, your comments, thoughts and ideas are always welcome.
