4.5 hp Sears Ted Williams outboard spark plug ???


New member
Hi, can anyone out there please tell me what the original or recommended replacement spark plug is for my engine? Also, is the fuel to oil ratio 50:1 ??

It’s a 4.5 horsepower Sears Roebuck Ted Williams outboard model #: 217-59462. Serial # : 202263

Thank you !
They were made by Eska, & used Tecumseh power heads, try searching there. I used to have link, but can’t find it now.
I still have a 1970ish 5.5HP my dad bought new.
we ran it at 24:1
Maybe try calling these guys https://discount-marine-parts.com/ob_ted_williams.html
or it looks like these people will sell you a manual $4, that should have what you need

Hey thanks a lot man, I called that shop and they answered all of my questions. Very knowledgeable and helpful people.

It is 25:1 fuel/oil ratio like you said. Champion RJ14YC spark plug. (.035 gap). And 90 weight gear lube for the lower unit/prop. Thanks again! 👍
