Probably this is the Twin.............It looks nice though the pics a a bit iffy and where is the Tiller?

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=140433778893&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

The tiller is the ONLY bit that makes these things complete and usable...........once lost, so is all. They have a unique fitment shape casting.

What is the model number and is it Illinois or Queensland motor?

$200 starting bid is probably the high end for what an old motor like this would be worth history unknown. Basic service parts would be another $200 in bits (Available) and probably say 8 hours labor to get useable.

Note!  Corrosion and mechanical is never a problem with these.

Bad point is that if the wear plate for the water pump is stuffed (Not available) into the gear case.....................throw the gearbox away keeping the internals for spare parts.

Actually, I am just doing service works on a CD 15 Johnson 1958 which is basically the same as this Evinrude. I reckon it is a "59".

Anyway, maybe some pics as to how something, so well engineered, cleans up after 52 years. These are just the top end at the moment. All bits are available as I said.





But, expect the coils to be toast!  That is parts for a start.



Everything cleans up well though, you just have to be interested...............



and just before setting 180 degree point orientation

It's a 1958 18hp fastwin.
Missing the tiller handle or not, I'd love it in my collection. Pitty it's so far away or I'd be bidding on it.
Anyway it was quite common for 18hp's to be installed with forward controls back then, then the tiller handle would be taken off (and probably lost).

Bid away Mark, I'll pick it up for you. Smiley
I'm sure we'll be able to get it to Melb' over time, without too much hassle.

I got the Evinrude Fastwin. Looks like no-one wanted it. These don't come up for sale very often.
I'll let you know next week when it's paid for.
Thanks for the encouragement and assistance fellas.

Hey Mark,
Without the help of Steve, the collection of your motor would have taken considerably longer than what it actually did. No wonder why knowone else bid on it Grin

I met with Steve early last Friday morning at Church Point wharf and we had a cuppa and a yak before setting off in his Quinny to collect the motor. After about a 15min ride, we arrived at Micks waterfront. Unfortunately, Mick had to dart off (by boat) to take his children to school as soon as we arrived. What a wonderful lifestyle they have. That just left Steve and I to sort out the loading.

Steve & I successfully managed to place your 'rude carefully into his Quinny without one bit of damage to:
1. The 'rude.
2. Steve's Quinny.
3. Our backs!

Your motor should be on it's way to Melb' sometime this week as soon a s I can make the time to secure it to a pallet and take it to the depot.
If not this week, next week for sure. Presently she safely locked away in my workshop. My collection appears to be getting larger, now with: 2 'rudes, 3 Mercs, 1 Shark & 1 Seagull.

My sincere thanks goes to Steve (Yochemin) and his two sea dogs for all their help on the day.
I'll wack some pics up soon.

MERCMAN.

Thanks for your help. Most appreciated. You Guys have made a huge effort.
Looks like I owe you a beer at the inaugural meeting.
No hurry to get it down to Melbourne.
