  1. Its all fun and games till someone feels a weed touch their leg.
  2. "I think she's Totaled" , Jerry. All fixable. I keep a small outboard tank with hose and primer bulb around for situations like this for a temp fuel source and testing purposes. 1st the fuel leak in the carb. Improper float height, bad inlet valve(needle & seat), or maybe bad gasket(s). Or all of the above. At least pull the spark plug, give it 2 tsp of gas and see if she wakes up.
  3. Like the AMC Matador, there isn't any cult group for Champion Outboards. But for someone collecting old outboards I think they'd want it. Keep up the fight.
  4. I think the weight is going to kill some of the action. Normally those would be stamped steel and the drop would flutter, wobble, or slip off to the side. I see these as a fast drop. But they might fill a niche for deeper water when line resistance slows the drop or tipped with a minnow. Or to downsize your lure as an example, take a Swedish pimple and compare that to a JB Go Devil. Similar but whats different is rate of drop. The JB is heavier, you loose some action but you can downsize and still be fishable at greater depths. It would also be an alternative to a lead head jig which is pretty much just a vertical presentation.
  5. Fell into one of youtube rabbit holes. Went from ice auger to Lion/hyena fights. Any progress on the coil?
  6. Well just a visit to this thread and to tip a beer at an early hour to see a comrade with common interests. What a merry time it is. Back to ACDC and playboy bunnies. Whoa bunny, whoa......................cya.
  7. Happy to help. I don't get into town very often and when I do I have to resist leaving before my errands are done. That old outboard is in your possession for a reason and glad it landed in your lap and not mine. You have to bring it back to life, if not its a piece of history gone forever. If this thing should give up it's parts to save others, well thats noble to. A garage with a project and beer is a happy happy place. In spirit "I'm already there Jerry"
