    Default 1967 Evinrude Lark VIII engine and 1967 Aerocraft Lark boat

    I just bought a 1967 Aerocraft Lark with, what I believe, is the original engine, an Evinrude Lark VIII with the matching push button power shifter. The previous owner said it needed a carburetor kit and a generator. I want to buy the repair manual but don't know how many cylinders the engine has, how can I tell? The original colors the boat (Aerocraft) was manufactured with include Burgundy, Midnight Blue and Seaspray Green. Our boat is Burgundy and we would like to paint it Seaspray Green, does anyone know what color this might be? Or if it is better to keep the original burgundy it was manufactured with?

    Welcome to iBoats.
    The Larks were two cylinders. Try this web site for more info on old Evinrudes.

    I have a 1966 Lark (I believe) and I have the book that came with it. It has sat outside for several years and hasn't been used since '87. Would you be interested in this boat, or scans of the literature? It has an evenrude on it that I believe is original and ran when it was last used.
    Let me know.
