Every Project Has A Starting Point...just maybe not an end.
That's a 1952 model, made by Scott-Atwater. 133-2-1325 is the model number.
I don't have a lot of details for you. www.discount-marine-parts can sell you a carb kit for that one. Other parts can be also be found there and around the internet, thanks to the popularity of Scott-Atwater outboards. That site also has manuals for Scott-Atwater outboards.
As you dig into it, we may be able to help you. You should also go to www.aomci.org and check them out. They have an Ask A Member forum, where there are several Scott-Atwater experts. They also have a classified section and a list of links that may prove useful
Sure...go ahead and laugh at my old aluminum boat. It's paid for!
One great thing about old, cheap motors is they are a great learning tool. And if you are really cheap like me they are great to see just how many parts adn jerry-rigging stuff you can make to get it running. And when they run, it's a great feeling.
