Bought this today, just my speed!

Perfect for Caddo Lake. Maybe not so good for Lake Meade.

It will work perfectly with a 14' Jon boat. Will post some photos after the next fishing trip.

Very nice!.. I'm impressed it still has the case!
I run a 3.3 mariner on my 12' mirror craft.... Doesn't compare
To your classic!

I was surprised when I pulled the cover and found two cylinders although it clearly says " YACHTWIN".

Will do. It will be a few weeks.

Here are a couple of videos of the same motor I found on YouTube:

I thought I was the only one who had one of those. Had it for years and I don't use it much any more, I have a 5 hp I use now.

I am not happy with the amount of water coming out of the pump. The motor has very few hours on it but rubber water pump impellers dry out over that number of years. I am in the process of running one down.

i dont blame ya, i would prob service everything i could! does it have a true weep hole? or just sputters out the exhaust? my 2hp just spudders some out the exhaust a Lil bit and I was thinking of changing the impeller till I seen/read that 98% of the water went on out the exhaust by the propeller under water and what little I see blowing out the exhaust vent was alright. have you found a source for parts yet?

There are six weep holes. The guy I bought it from said there is a thermostat and the water doesn't start to flow until the motor reaches operating temperature. Everything is on the internet. When I researched it I found that Evinrude didn't use a thermostat on this model until 1968. Mine is a 1967.
