    I drainded the lower unit a loooong time ago. Didn't want the headache that Illinois winters can cause due to a little water left in it. This boat had been outside uncovered for 20 years.

    Please replace that old pump before you crank it. It is probably dry rotted and the last thing you want is pieces getting in your cooling system.

    Had two big nest on the trailer bunks and one on the back casting seat. They worked me over pretty good.

    Once you get it running an old boat motor mechanic told me to mix the first tank of gas at 25 to 1 like a new motor to lube everything up real well and run it slow at first until everything gets lubed up well....run it like a new motor break in was his advice. I have done this on several old motors and done a few decarbs on some low compression motors with good success. Good Luck!

    Great motors.
    I will never forget me and my Grand Daddy were in one of Dad's small V-Bottom Boats going fishing when I was maybe 10 years old. I was in the rear running the Fastwin 18 buzzing us down the river when Grand Daddy looked back and said "Are we wide open?", I said "Yep, wide open". He eased His way to the back of the boat, reached over me and adjusted the high speed jet knob, and in a second or two we were skint back flying down the river!
    The high and low speed adjustments were right there in easy reach, so it was with that motor if your gas was good and the plugs were clean, there was no reason you could not keep that motor running great at any time.
    30 years or so later, I reversed the role and did the favor for an older friend on His Evinrude. "Where did you learn that?" He asked. I just grinned.
    Dad always remembered what numbers the knobs were turned to. He had to. Many years ago we kept that motor in the house, and me and my Brother would sit on it like riding a horse and I am sure we twisted those big white knobs every which a way!
    Yep, I have an attachment to those old Evinrude motors! Always will!
    Dad's was a 1957, here is a 1958 almost the same. Check out that style!
