My first post here, what a fantastic resource! I just made my first foray into vintage outboards by purchasing a 3hp evinrude lightwin from an online seller (kept missing out on local sellers!)
Problem: the outboard I purchased online has the tip of it's exhaust outlet broken off (see photos). Should I be concerned? I wouldn't think that this would impact on operation noticeably on such a small (slow) motor.
Also, does anybody know how interchangeable the lower units are on these motors? I've found a number of them for sale, but I'm not sure which years my motor would be compatible with?
