I dug out the old outboard and decided to test it. I have to study it to figure out how to put controls on it that can be controlled from the driver’s seat.

I set it up on a sawhorse and put it in a barrel of water, and started it right up. It purred like a kitten. Whew! I was afraid I would have to get it tuned up.

I have one frozen mounting screw, and I can’t figure out how the tilt release works, but the motor runs and sounds great!

That will do nicely!
