Classic Evinrude

Just been up to dads house and been playing with his old evinrudes.
We failed to get this one going ( it may need the carb to be stripped down).

We think the knob on the front centre is a mixture knob lean/rich etc.

Check out the prop!!

Both engines are e bay specials!!

Check the spark - these are famous for coil failures. I have a slighly later model.

Sierra-made replacements are available cheaply on Amazon.com

Thanks for the reply Hobnob, it was sparking fine the fuel seemed to be going in and then it started coming out of the air intake hole. I suspect the float needle valve was jammed etc.
There was just no fuel getting through to the cylinders.

Question; does yours have an air filter on the front of the carb?

Thanks

Lee

I have a theory.

Some of these old Evinrudes had a thick fibre washer in the carb round the main jet. It doesn't like new fuel at all and disintegrates, blocking everything up. If it's there, it IS possible to very carefully replace it with a carefully cut bit of motorcycle fuel line.

First outboard I had as a child was an old Evinrude - also had a mixture adjustment on the front.

That thing up front is a mixture adjustment knob.

These outboards don't have air filters, they only have a plate in front of the carb to stop them from screaming so loud
