Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old threads or hijack existing threads. Old threads of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old threads should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís thread (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the thread is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old thread.

5. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís thread. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to threads that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any thread that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old thread.

7. Posting at the end of any thread is considered to be hijacking the original posters thread which in turn subjects the thread to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive thread asking you not to reply to old threads. The Red banner will read: Please note this thread has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new thread.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • 1963 40 HP outboard parts

    I have a 1963 40 HP Evinrude outboard on the original Boston Whaler as it was purchased in 1963. I know very little about outboards. I have installed new throttle cables and now need the following things. Carb kit, fuel tank and fuel line. Where can I find these things? I have googled pressure tank and can only seem to find old ones that I am sure have leaks all over them.

    Re: 1963 40 HP outboard parts

    There are no new pressure tanks, so all you will find will be old ones.
    The motor can be converted to run on the single line tanks. All it takes a bit of plumbing skill and an added fuel pump.

    Do you know when the last time the motor was run? It may need more than a carb kit:

    Good luck! I have a '69 40 HP on a 1961 Whaler 13', so I know where you're coming from....
    Please no PMs. My mailbox is full anyway......

      I don't think the '63 used a pressure tank. I think they changed to fuel pumps in 1958.

      Tell us the model number of the engine.

        Correct, pressure tanks were history by 1963. You can get tanks and hoses for it at Wal-Mart. Oops, I mean iboats. Sorry.
        But iboats does carry the carb kit.
