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.

  • Eska 7.5 hp. motor

    Hope I found the right page; this time... If not, I surely could use some help~!

    I am doing this for my dad. He is trying to find out about his Eska motor

    Model # 14209-B
    Serial # 01-066160

    How old is it and any other information one might have, I would appreciate it.
    He didn't say wether it needed maintenance...

    Thanks,

    Rondee

    1984 uses a 640-19C Tecumseh powerhead. Sears clone 217.586750. A lawnmower dealer can help with powerhead parts. Sears has a website www3.sears.com where you can plug in that number I gave and see and possibly order parts, and maybe even a manual. Use 2-stroke chainsaw/lawnmower oil instead of outboard oil.
    Hey, Have you seen? They make Really Cool life preservers nowadays.
    So "Looking Dorky" is no longer an excuse for not wearing one.

      Thank you for the information. I appreciate your time.
      Is there an outlet to get a manual and do you know the value?

        If Sears doesn't have the part you need, contact certifiedpartscorp.com. You have to call them at the number on their website. They have most everything Eska.

        As for the manual, there's a guy on eBay selling those manuals. Just search for Eska Outboard and you'll find them.

        Sure...go ahead and laugh at my old aluminum boat. It's paid for!

                While 2 stroke chainsaw oil is not wrong I've done some research and
                and my 6 aftermarket service manuals 55-89 all say quality outboard oil.
                for all of the aircooled outboards.My Citgo TCW3 oil container says
                "Recommended for 2 cycle engines including outboards,snowmobiles,motor cycles,chainsaws,string trimmers,and lawnmowers".I'm posting this just to make it a little easier for these aircooled guys.

                    It is allways better to do your own thread.But here is what I find
                    1972,Fuel mix is 24:1 5.3 ozs per gallon.Any quality 2 stroke oil.I use TCW3 rated outboard oil.Gearcase uses any SAE 90 outboard gear lube.
                    Motor has a Tecumseh aircooled power head with a water cooled exhaust leg.You will most likely have to go through the fuel system from tank to carb.
                    And a new impeller before any serious boating.
                    These are marginal performers.Try to get it going with least investment possible.
