Thread: Barn find

  1. #1

    Default Barn find

    Found an old outboard in a local barn and am trying to identify it. Marked Tecumseh 61075 on the flywheel. Plate on steering arm under motor reads:
    2175854
    SEARS, ROEBUCK AND CO
    IN CANADA, SIMPSONS-SEARS LIMITED.
    Rope start
    Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Would like to get it running. Am capable of the work involved. No plug as yet, haven't checked for spark. Not knowing what it actually is, limits my starting point!

    Tecumseh engine parts can be found at your local small engine repair shop if you get the model number right check with sears parts direct for part numbers.
