    Default 1967 evinrude fast win 18hp

    Hey....new to forum here and new to boat motors also.....I picked up and 14í boat and trailer with this motor for 300$ and just here asking to be pointed halfway in right direction. So to start I picked it up last night the guy poured mixed gas into carb and fired up for couple seconds....when I get home tonight I am going to check compression and go from there besides cleaning/rebuilding carb anything else I should check right off the back on this motor any help is appreciated thanks in advance

    Yes it fired up.--------First thing I do on motors of that era is remove the flywheel to see the coils.----They will be cracked or have a new set already.----Almost a bonus if they are cracked as it is likely a " low hour " motor.

    Thanks will do.....pulling the flywheel pretty much like one off a car or mower I hope so I will get that off tonight also after checking compression .....and gonna buy new gas line today for it......around what is a good spec for compression.....should I go ahead a set the gap for points while I’m in there then I would presume???

    If the coils are cracked then it's a good indication that everything including the points, condensers, and plug wires are 52 years old. I'd replace it all while I was there.

    Ok I believe to have a bigger problem than I thought......so when I got chance to work on motor. I cleaned carb till I thought was clean enough to eat from....checked for spark had bright blue spark (somehow).....so I threw a set for plugs in it and tried starting it.....it fired up ran for couple seconds I shut it down got my tank of water set up and started motor again this time motor reved good....good water come out of it.....ran for two mins started to hear a noise by time I reached to turn off the motor shut itself off.....not in a good way parts went flying. Right off back I could armature plate had caught flywheel and went for a ride around in a circle��...I pulled flywheel seems that one of the coils caught the flywheel and destroyed the armature plate and linkages....and on top off that it had a sheared crankshaft keyway how it had spark I donít know........any chance of repairing this by chance?


    update I have found all the parts coil capacitors points linkages that broke.....the armature plate seems to be harder.....I found on a eBay but say it is for a 57 evinrude 18hp.....are they interchangeable or is that too far off in the years



    also mine is a 18702 18hp fast win

    This saga proves once again that 50 year old motor ( 3 or 4 owners ) should get a complete inspection before trying to start them.------Used parts for them are plentiful in some areas.

    In 1967 Evinrude stuck with the popular 18 HP designation.----Essentially the same motor was marketed by JOHNSON as a 20 HP model.----So that is what you would use to get the part #.-----Your location ?

    69 was the first year for the 25HP model.----More to it than changing the carburetor.----Different / finer balanced crankshaft was one thing.---Starting kit is listed at $550 or so.-----I would want 2 parts motors for that kind of coins.-----A donor motor will get you a reasonably priced electric start plus the spare parts.

    25hp has a different cylinder head, different pistons, different crankshaft, different carburetor (besides the jet). If you do one thing, you must do it all.

    I see that the starter kit is listed for the 1972 through 1976 18 to 25 horse motors. If I want to put electric start on a 1969 18 horse, which year and size motors should I look for as donors?

    Same kit will work.---From 18 / 20 / 25 HP , but only for the 22 cubic inch models !!----The 22 cubic inch was made from 57 to 76 or so.------Some sellers of course will say ----" yes it fits " to almost anything.

    I got a boatload of parts here. What do you need? No extra electric start parts, however.....I use them all up as the old timers like 'em here, just did up a Johnson 20 to electric start. Can also get them (used) at Tim's Outboard Hackensack MN 218 682 2331. Ship same day if you order before 1pm
