    The Michigan Wheel catalogs are in the Inner Sanctum, but
    they’re not indexed, but show the year of each catalog.
    If you know the approximate year, you might get lucky.

    Thanks Chris and Tubs. I think I have run across old 82-M’s before.
    Suppose the “M” is for “Marine”?

    I’ll keep on the lookout for those, but the D16 are tucked in for
    now for a long winter’s nap.
    I’d like to tuck in for winter as well….. nasty snow storm going on
    right now.

    Interesting that the pump mounts up that high, and in the same location
    as my 1925 Lightwin / Ruddertwin with no water pump.

    This one of mine with these readings, which are on the low side,
    surprisingly ran and idles half decent.

    Compression, cylinders dry, pulled over by hand, 3 pulls each cylinder
    Starboard
    Top – 74
    Bot – 73
    Port
    Top – 69
    Bot – 71

    I use the AC – C87 in both of mine.

    Not sure if I have those or not, but the last AC 18mm plugs I
    bought didn’t have / use the washers…… must have been
    a “Ford” thing.

    Bucc… another nice creative fix. I think that that warrants a tech article for the Antique Outboarder

    I’m guessing it’s a lot harder to say “Johnson” in Dutch!
    Probably something like “Yanson”.

    Too bad the catalogs in the Inner Sanctum aren’t indexed.

    Thank you Buccaneer for the great reply! How did you blank out the BOM impeller so you are only down to one impeller?

    I blanked off the bailer pump by fitting an aluminum
    “hockey puck” like piece in the cavity (not a photo of my motor)
    like in the photo.

    pump cavity.

    Regarding the O-rings, I measured the size I needed, and found some
    very close on EBay……. can’t remember how they worked out,
    and I can’t find a part / size number.

    According to my notes, I ended up using Honda impellers in the two 7.5 hp bail-a-matics
    I worked on. I blanked the bailer pump, and just used one impeller in each motor.
    I tried other impellers as well that some people said worked, but not for me.
    The part number I show was…….. 19210-ZW9-013

    Some people epoxied a Honda liner into the Scott pump housing, but I was not
    able to find where anyone sold “just” the liner, so I added brass sheet
    on the walls of the original liner to reduce it’s diameter, so the Honda impeller would pump
    nicely.

    My notes……
    Installed a .035 brass liner inside of the
    current water pump liner to use the Honda impeller,
    and made a new brass cover plate on pump.
    Pump cavity ID was originally 1.685, depth .600
    Pump cavity ID with brass insert is 1.632,
    .053 smaller than original.
    Honda impeller specs – OD 1.785 x .585

    I would make the new cork just a little higher than the shriveled up old one.
    Usually there’s only 1/4″ or so of float pin travel, so as long as there’s
    no interference with the float hitting the top cover or sides, it should work.
