No, not this one............................

This one - A chip off the old block...........

So, my son bought this outboard motor Old_wi10

A friend sold it to him because he knew that Mark would restore it. Some sort of family treasure.

We had a summer cottage on Onway lake in New Hampshire when I was growing up and I remember Evinrudes and Johnson Sea Horse outboards speeding around the lake and I always wanted one. We had a rowboat.

We in Hungary have  a nice lake called  Balaton - where I have a summer house- and until the mid 80's motorboats were allowed. There were plenty of Mercury, Evinrude and Johnson outboard motors used by affluent people, mostly Hungarians who made their furtune after emigrating to and settling in the West and returned home in summer to spend their vacation in their motherland, traveling on untouchable Western European and US passports.

My father - not an emigrant but a "middle class" doctor - towed me and my sister on waterskies back in the early 70-s. He had black Mercury 50HP and white Johnson50 outboard motors fixed on the aft of mahogany hulls...beautiful American motors that together with the COX red postage stamp backplate reedie I accidentally encountered in 74 drove me irreversably towards engines and combustion engineering....my goodness,those were the best summers...

You noticed that!

Handy when trolling through the pond grass too.  We used to catch Bass, Perch, and in the evenings Horned-pouts (catfish.)

Loved that cottage.  When school let out in early June (Mom was a teacher) we would pack up and move there for the summer.  Dad would commute to his business in town.

Boulder in the front yard, deposited by some glacier eons ago.  When we visited two years ago, the boulder was gone and so was the cabin replaced by a house.  

Saturday nights always a barn dance.  Chocolate cake and vanilla ice cream.

Thanks for that decal link Levent, forwarded it to my son.

Mark sent additional pictures, before he stripped it I guess.

Some sort of wierd plug. A plug within a plug he says. Wards? I believe "Wards Automotive" not Montgomery Wards?

That style of plug was pretty common.  It could be dismantled for cleaning.
