1950's 10 HP Johnson rescue

Post by Kismet »

Onthewater?

I got my parts through the marine mechanic who orders Evinrude/Johnson parts from various dealers. Getting the parts was no problem.


Have a good summer. :)

Pappy? A '55? I thought the bronze powerhead started in '56. Huh.

Thank you. I'm running it rich right now since I don't know its immediate history. I'll lean it out to 24 to 1 as I fill the tank.

The Alumacraft F-7 didn't need much. I scoured the interior, painted the trailer, spar urethaned the transom, replaced, stained and protected the engine plate, but stopped short of repainting the interior, and stopped FAR short of using brillo pads on the hull--I'm too old for that stuff anymore.

I think I'm out of the rehab business. It was fun while I lasted. :)

Listed it and it went down the road within 10 days. Sweet little boat.

I was going to make the motor and boat a package, but the motor wasn't done, and I think I'll do better selling them separately, if someone realizes what a dependable engine the 10 hp Johnny is.

God knows I love mine, it just makes me nervous now that my grandfather and most of his buddies have all passed into the history books that there will be fewer and fewer parts accessible for these that I don't want to risk something going wrong with it that I can't fish.

At the same time I want to use it to take my son fishing now that he's old enough to be on the boat (without my wife having a fit) so that by the time I give it to him he'll have his own special memories of fishing with it with his dad the way both my father and I do...
I have a marriage license and a fishing license, but I only carry one in my wallet.
