    Default ted williams 7.5 question "pics"

    i belive this motor to be a ted williams 7.5?
    what year is this? im thinking its a 72'

    took it apart because of blown head gasket. motor is in good condition.
    metal tab behind carb reads T-7103804 and 6675420

    another says sears roebuck 217-58820

    also what type of metal is it made out of? steel? magneese?

    Aluminum and pot metal with a steel cylinder liner and crankshaft.
    A magnet will help tell.

    That head looks like it came from a Tecumseh AH61 chainsaw engine. You should be able to find a head gasket by taking it to a lawnmower/chainsaw shop.

    Magnesium/aluminum/nickel alloy castings, steel cylinder liner and moving parts except piston and flywheel.

    Most likely built by Eska using a Tecumseh power head.and a water cooled leg with a pump.Eska is out of business.

    still trying to figure out the year?
    if it is a Tecumseh AH61 chainsaw engine, can it be used as something other than a outboard motor?
    possibly some thing with two wheels?

    its also the model that has a fuel tank on top of the motor and the option to run another additional tank.
    thanks.............

    Ebay is your best bet. You could use Craig's List in your area, but you won't reach that many people looking for parts for that outboard.

    As far as what they're worth, you could look at ebay's completed auctions. You won't get rich, but some of the parts will probably sell.

    For some things, like outboard parts, ebay is the only choice that will get them sold and for what the market will bear. Every other way you can sell will take a long time and you'll make less.

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