1963 Evinrude Sportwin 10 hp

Here we have a cool, a little bigger engine. It is a 1963 Evinrude Sportwin 10 hp, short shaft

Some specifications of the engine:

- two stroke
- two cylinder
- bore 60.3 mm
- stroke 47.62 mm
- "Eas-A-Matic" pull starter
- weight 30 kg

The engine is in an overall great condition. Only real problem was that when I removed the head, three out of ten head bolts snapped right off so I had to drill them out and tap new holes to the second oversize. Last picture shows new bolts.

Got it from the original owner. Even got the original owners manual!

The engine cover looks like some kind of '70s cartoon space helmet


  1. HI! Did you happen to scan the owners manual and have a copy of it that you could email me??

  2. Please let me join in regarding the above request for owners manual information. While I have been boating since 1957 I have never had any experience with a two stroke engine and now find one in my garage waiting to be put to work on a 14 foot aluminum boat. Any assistance would be appreciated.
