Enthusiasts of vintage outboard motors fall into two categories. First, there is the tinkerer or sportsperson who buys an old motor at a yard sale with an eye on restoring and actually using it. Second, there is the enthusiast who performs a complete, authentic restoration for the pure satisfaction of returning a vintage piece of machinery to its original condition. Often this second motor will become a static display, taken out for the occasional boat show.This how-to book caters to both groups by presenting case studies covering five of the most typical motor types: an antique 1922 Johnson Waterbug, a classic 1955 Evinrude Sportwin 10, an air-cooled bargain 1957 Comanco, a late-model 3.9hp single 1964 Mercury, and a 1950s electric Minn-Kota. The case studies discuss principles applicable to all vintage outboards and are preceded by chapters explaining how to choose an older motor, anatomy and mechanics, and equipping a shop. Following the case studies, the author addresses routine maintenance and usage, including troubleshooting tips and model-specific characteristics.
