Byron Workshop Meet
Dry

.
8:00AM until 3:00PM (please do not arrive before 7:30AM)

,. This will be a working meet (i.e., "hands-on technology sharing session) in Mark's shop

. We are asking members who want to attend to bring a motor or two that have problems that prevent the motor from running or functioning properly... more specifically, issues that you do NOT know how to resolve, or need help with

. If you have accomplished some trick assembly and want to demonstrate that to attendees, that would be a great learning opportunity to share. We are also asking members with extensive experience in getting motors to run and function properly (either general or brand-specific knowledge) to attend and serve as sources of expertise to help others resolve their problems

. We will not have many factory tools available for your use but will try to make-do with what tools Mark has available (i.e., wide assortment of general hand tools, flywheel pullers, Merc-O-Tronic tester, functioning and exhausted test tank, gap gages, tachometer, some shop manuals, etc.) and our WC-owned Mercury special tools

. If your problem can only be seen on a running motor, please use the test tank to demonstrate the issue

. Some problems may have easy solutions and the motors can be restored to full functionality during the meet... in such cases, please use the test tank to verify the fixes

. In some cases, issues may be too complex to resolve at the meet (i.e., needed parts are unavailable, needed special tools are unavailable, insufficient time not available, etc.); in such cases there might be recommendations made for further diagnosis and/or issue resolution... please bring a note pad to record applicable recommendations by the attending experts

. If you know you will need parts for your motor, please bring them to the meet with the motor; if you know you will need to cut some gaskets, bring gasket material (usually available at most auto parts stores); I can supply scissors, Xacto knives and some hole punches (and bandages).

. Technical presentations during lunch will include demonstration of recharging magnets in a pre-WWII flywheel by Mark Suter and handout of a newly-compiled list of sources for restoration parts and services by Jerry Conroy

. BRING YOUR OWN LUNCH; tables and chairs will be set up in our other pole barn for lunch; coffee, donut holes and water will be provided; NO FOOD OR BEVERAGES ARE ALLOWED IN MARK'S BARN

. Guided tours of the Suter Collection will not be available during this meet

. The need to bring "problem motors to this meet cannot be over-emphasized; if we have nothing to work on, there will be nothing learned and the meet will end early... and will be a huge waste of our collective time and effort; so please help make this meet a success!

Algonac Maritime Museum Display
Informal

NOTE THE DATE CHANGE to June 23. Members of AOMCI and the Great Lakes Chapter are again invited by the Algonac-Clay Maritime Museum to display motors and boats at the museum. This will be a one-day display. This year our meet date corresponds with the ACBS ?Where it all began? meet at the nearby former Chris Craft Plant. There will be lot?s of ?boat? folks in town for this event so we should see much traffic past our display. This meet is a great opportunity to show your collection to the general public, generate interest in our hobby and club? and perhaps gain some ?barn find? motor leads.

July 28, 2018 Detroit, MI

Dossin Great Lakes Museum, Belle Isle Park, Detroit, MI.
Great Lakes Marine Engine & Boat Expo
Informal

A gathering of antique and classic outboard and inboard marine propulsion units, boats and artifacts jointly sponsored by the Great Lakes and Southern Ontario Rowboat Motor Chapters of AOMCI. Theme of the meet is open to interesting marine artifacts of all kinds. Motors both outboard and inboard internal combustion, steam, electric and hand powered. Standalone motor displays as well as units installed on or in period correct boats are welcome. The intent is to display and demonstrate these early units, their history, and their more-than-a-century-old connection to Michigan. There will be great motor brands such as Caille, Waterman, Lockwood-Ash, Evinrude and Aerothrust on hand, just to name a few. A test tank will be available, we will have running motors making smoke during the day. It may be possible that a rowboat motor service clinic will be part of the festivities, featuring service tips on such items as lower units, water pumps, timers and magnetos, and fuel systems/mixer valves. Included in the display will be the oldest running motors in in our club. Don?t miss this opportunity to see them up close and witness them in action. An award will go to the oldest running as well as the easiest starting motor (judged by the least number of attempts to get it started). There will be a Swap and Sell area separate from the motor display, any maritime and marine motor items will be allowed regardless of vintage. We hope you will come out to enjoy the surroundings and camaraderie, visit with the old iron, and take a tour of the wonderful Dossin Museum. We're not offering a lunch, but food vendors are normally on duty, or bring your own and picnic alongside the picturesque Detroit River and watch the boating action on the water. The show opens at 9 AM, hope to see you there.
