Vintage Boat Motor


1953 EVINRUDE 3 HP LIGHTWIN OUTBOARD MOTOR

This motor was a carry-along fishing boat motors made by OMC from 1952 to 1967.  It weighs 32 pounds, and delivers three horsepower.  It is all metal.  There is not one piece of plastic on it.  The motor is a basic twin cylinder two-cycle design used on many Johnson/Evinrude motors through the years.  There tank holds 2/3 gallon of gas contained in the gravity fed tank on the top. There are no gears.  Pulling the rope and cranking the engine turns the propeller. The prop is at an angle so the motor can be tilted up for shallow water.  This motor was a simple, rugged reliable motor and many of them are still in operation today.
