    This is the best place for the information you need to be successful in restoring, repairing, reviving, or whatever you’re going to do to your motor.

    Keep coming back here. Better yet, think about joining the AOMCI and becoming a full-fledged member. There are plenty of friendly and helpful AOMCI members on your side of the country that would welcome you to the club and also be a great resource for you going forward.

    Hope this helps.

    Tiller handle and its grab bar are probably brass and should be nickel plated. There is supposed to be a leather-wrapped wooded grip on the tiller handle.

    Driveshaft tube should be nickel plated as well, but I have to check that. The model B was the first salt-water model Johnson and I believe the main difference between the A and the B was the type of drive and propeller shafts used. The model “A” Johnson definitely had a nickel-plated driveshaft tube. Early models used a steel tube that was nickeled, but they switched to all brass tubes at some point in 1923.

    If the four screws directly underneath the powerhead have been taken out, and your lower unit has also been taken off, then the only thing bonding the base of the crankcase to that flange is friction or corrosion or strong sealer, of a combination of the three. I’d suggest some gentle heating from a propane torch to warm things up, then find a place to nudge it with a plastic hammer or dead-blow mallet with a non-marring face and try to break it loose. Make sure your water pipes are all undone as well.

    Hope this helps.

    I’d suggest that you at least go to the trouble of figuring out how thick the bottom of the plunger still is. Rudimentary measurement using the depth rod on a dial caliper would more than suffice. It might have sufficient material left, it might be paper thin. You at least want to know what you have.

    Hope it helps.

    It needs the plugs with the shorter insulator because of the lack of clearance. Champion didn’t make a plug that fit properly WRT clearance inside the aluminum cover that they have to sit behind/inside. You can use 6M or similar Champion plug but its kind of a pain to get the spark plug leads on. The AC number that I use is 82-M.

    Hope this hemps.

    if its ID’d as an SR, it may be the Motorgo version of the Caille model 30. I’ve seen at least three of those motors identified with the SR prefix and they were all decaled as Motorgo’s

    Hope this helps.

    I’ve only been able to pack that one with grease when I had the motor apart. it’s the only way I know of to make sure it actually gets in to where you want it.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Harrison. As discussed on the phone, its a 1929 Elto Lighweight rated @ 3.5 HP and it is the folding model.

    The power unit you’re referring to is the coil.

    I’ll look thru my data for scanned copies of manuals and such but I’m hoping that Tubs or some other folks can jump in here and help out with anything they might have.

    Also as discussed, check with Penn’s Old Outboards for a replacement flywheel.

    Hope this helps.

    EDIT – seems a discussion on this type of motor just got started in another forum on this site.
