1963 Evinrude Sportwin 10 hp
Today I took my 1963 Sportwin out for its first successful outing on the lake in 20 years. I'd like to point out the word successful since last time I tried it a few weeks ago the outing ended with a shattered water pump impeller and a heat seized engine.. Oh well. Back to the workshop!
Here is what the impeller looked like after last time
I replaced the impeller and thermostat and went through the entire engine to check for damage from the seizure, luckily nothing was damaged.
Here is a short video of it running
Here comes a couple of pics from the outing. What a lovely little engine that Sportwin is!
Note the matching Evinrude Cruis-a-day six gallon tank
