More to clean out of the shed!!   This is an Evinrude Fastwin 15 or 18 pre. 1960, needs a pressurized fuel tank. Turns over with good compression has not been run for 15 years. It has a broken throttle control handle and it was on remote controls, the steering pivot is ceased and the outside is all there but in a sad state. Motor all looks good so it could be restored or for a parts project.
Unit is located in Bairnsdale Victoria. Pick up preferred as you may be interested in lots of the other old marine gear that I have collected from running my own marine repair business. Retired old fart so it all has to go soon.
Please Make an offer!!            As I want it to go to a good home instead of the scrap yard.     Ph 0428 516 333

Well done Mark. If it were a Short Shaft, perhaps I would have shown some interest.
Do you have a suitable Tank for the old girl? If not, let me know and I'll keep an eye our for you.

Thanks Guy,

Someone had to get it, nice old outboard. I buy any old pressurized tanks I see, so I do have a spare. Keep in mind that they can be converted to a short. All those old Johnsons and Evinrudes had extension blocks to make them long.

Ah yes Mark,
The old "pacemaker" type thingy. I clean forgot, silly me.
With that model OMC, does the drive shaft and shift shaft have separate extension pieces or are they one piece (except shift shaft) and you have to change them?

I have done a few conversions. Take off the extension piece, Cut exactly 5 inches off the cooling tube and gearshift rod. Using a chainsaw blade round file, file a groove for the gearshift connector locating bolt. The driveshaft pulls straight out of the gearbox, (except 5.5 & 6hp) Replace with a short shaft or get an engineer to cut 5 inches out of the shaft and re-weld it. Not that hard to do.

Many years ago, I picked up a 25" Merc 200hp 2.4ltr, it had a Pacemaker.
I removed the Pacemaker, cut the cooling tube, installed an I6 20" shift shaft, had an engineering shop cut down all the bolts an re-thread, had a friend cut and shut the drive shaft.

It never let go, despite hauling out 3 Skiers on a regular basis.
