    Looking for a good internet resource for diagrams, parts books, etc for 60's vintage Evinrude. Lots of sites out there, seems like they all want to sell a book for 30 to 40 bucks.

    I just need a schematic of a 10020 10 horse 1960 Evinrude.

    Info appreciated.

    Well, charlie ok. I guess I don't need it after all. Send me a shim for the shift mechanism so the throttle stop works I'll pay full retail. Why should I do your work, anyway.

    I just want a part number so I can give an overcharging asshole like you some money.

    Your wiseass remark is not an indication of my ethics.

    Isn't it time for your self-gratification therapy?

    I have an old OMC outboard, it is a 2 cylinder with spark advance for the throttle and an all brass lower unit. Was running when put up many years ago. Will sell if anyone is interested. Located in VA. Jeff

    Halfmile, You gotta admit, if that comment wasn't directed at you it would be pretty funny! :) Good luck finding the part.

    I know, I worked in a motorcycle shop for some years, I have seen them all.

    Spark plug: he asks "which way do you turn it to get it out?" And then " I have a 2 cylinder, do they both turn the same way?"

    Used to charge an ignition condenser and leave it on the counter so Icould watch people pick it up. One guy picked it up every day for a week.

    Unreal.

    Buddy of mine had a repair shop. Every once in a while a customer would bring in the part and want him to put it on. Heard him ask one of them if they bring their own eggs to the diner when they go for Breakfast. The look on the guys face was "priceless".

    There is a company in Minneapolis MN that has a lot of parts for old outboard motors. I can't find the link but maybe a yellow pages search would get it.

    This is a tune-up and repair manual for JOHNSON / EVINURED
    built in 1956 TO 1970.

    The manual for the do-it-yourselfer, professional mechanic and classroom student.
    All horsepowers from 1.5hp to 40hp covered
    Dozens of exploded line drawings
    Over 1300 detailed photos and illustrations
    Over 430 pages (SELOC volume 1)

    Detailed Wiring Diagrams
    Chapters include

    Safety Ignition Lower Unit
    Tuning Electrical Maintenance
    Powerhead
    Accessories
    Timing
    Fuel
    Hand Starter



    Manual includes step-by-step illustrated keyed procedures serve as a guide through the complete job including all adjustments. Seloc manuals are known for being very complete. Some competitive manuals will leave out procedures they think are best left to professionals. Seloc on the other hand will warn you of procedures that they think best left to professionals but will still give complete repair instructions for those procedures. OEM manuals are often written for professional mechanics and assume that you already know the basics and therefore will leave some of these out of their manual - and they assume that you will have all the special tools available. Seloc on the other hand will include all basics and will tell of ways to avoid the use of some special tools when known. Even when a work around is provided for a special tool the repair method using the special tool will be included as well.

    This is a used manual in excelent condition.

    "Every once in a while a customer would bring in the part and want him to put it on. Heard him ask one of them if they bring their own eggs to the diner when they go for Breakfast."

    I raise my right hand and admit I am "guilty" of this practice. I fully realize a repair shop has to maintain a good return on investment to keep their doors open and I also realize a good portion of their income is derived from a large mark-up in parts.

    I do 75% of my own mechanic work but once in a while I hire an independant shop to install a higher grade aftermarket part that I supply. I expect to pay a premium when I hire them for labor only but I am upfront about it and I politely ask if they would like to do the work.

    As a shop owner, would you take my money for labor only or would you tell me to hit the road?

    Just keep searching the internet outboard chat sites. You'll probably find the links or schematics to all the info you need somewhere. There are plenty of people that would gladly help FOR FREE. Ebay may be a source as well, at least to show what to search the internet for. Some like to make a buck on anything, and some are helpful. Who the hell wants to pay through the nose on some old low value motor anyhow. I just took my rowboat to a weld shop to see if they could bend some aluminum to fix the weak transom. Uh, $300 to $500 dollars. Jeeze, the boat isn't worth $100. Junkyard here I come.

    Don't laugh at stupid questions, there are plenty of stupid mechanics as well, like the jerk who ripped the fake nuts off my SS Camaro hubcaps. My buddy just got an old Jeep. Couldn't get the lug nuts off. They have right hand thread on the right, and left hand thread on the left. You could tell many people didn't know this, as the rims holes were reamed almost the size of the nuts.

    Older Chrysler products had the lug nuts that way too. My Dad said it was so rotation wouldn't make them spin loose.

    This I believe was common on all the 40's and 50's Mopars, and maybe later too.

    Duh, I remember seeing R and L on the studs of a Jeep or Mopar.I guess maybe someone imitating a Richard Petty pitstop wouldn't take the time to look or LEARN something!

    Hey HM,
    I had a guy come in my shop one day with a spark plug that he'd bought at K-Mart for his Bultaco Sherpa T. He says 'what's the gap on this', I say '.035"', he says 'how thick is that'? I say 'about the thickness of a dime'.
    He calls back a couple hours later, 'it won't f*#king start you jerk'!! I say 'did you gap the plug with a dime'? He says' well not exactly, I only had a couple nickles'!!! I went to the fridge for a cold one........

    Been there, done that,

    Cheers,

    George
