Thread: Three ESKAs

  1. #1

    Default Three ESKAs

    Here are 3 different versions of the Tecumseh ESKA outboard. We have an ESKA 7.0, a Sears Ted Williams (7.5?), and a Golden Jet 5.0. The fuel tank is identical on all 3 but there are many differences. The plastic shroud on the G Jet has louvres front and rear to vent cooling air, while the ESKA has the uncut shape of the louvres molded in but not opened. Ted's shroud is MIA. The ESKA and the G Jet both have a remote fuel tank fitting, and both have one nipple broken off the fuel pump (very thin nipple + old stiff fuel hose causes damage). Both have been repaired with a screw in the broken hole, one a bit more neatly than the other. Two nipples are not necessary, a tee in the hose works fine. The Ted has a single nipple fuel pump and does not have a water pump, just a tube projecting into the prop wash to catch cooling water and direct it up the leg. I overhauled Ted in the 1970s, it has seen a lot of use but still runs. The ESKA belongs to a friend, I just went over it to put it back in service after a few decades in a barn. It runs great. The ESKA also has a neutral/forward clutch. Golden Jet is as-found, never have tried to run it. Does anybody have a list of all the names and variations under which these motors were sold? ESKA has tiller throttle control.
