<P>HI, WE BOUGHT A 1955 EVINRUDE 25 HP LONG SHAFT FOR OUR 16 FT. DUCK BOAT. WE WERE SHOWED THAT IT RAN IN A CAN W/ WATER. IT SEEMED FINE UNTIL WE BROKE THE SHEAR PIN AND TOOK IT TO THE SHOP TO MAKE SURE THAT WE GET THE PROPER SHEAR PINS, AND WE DECIDED TO LET THE SHOP DO A CHECK ON IT. WE WERE TOLD THAT IT WAS ONLY RUNNING ON ONE CYLINDER, AND THAT IT WOULD NEED A COIL, CONDENSOR AND POSSIBLY POINTS. MY QUESTION IS HOW HARD IS IT TO CHANGE THESE PARTS OURSELVES? WE ARE PRETTY GOOD IN MECHANICS ON VEHICLES, BUT DO NOT HAVE MUCH EXPERIENCE IN OUTBOARDS. WE HAVE HAD DIFFICULTY IN FINDING REFERENCE MATERIAL ON THE&nbsp;REPAIR OF THIS MOTOR. HAS ANYONE WORKED ON A MOTOR LIKE THIS, AND DO YOU HAVE ANY INFO.&nbsp;FOR THE DO IT YOURSELFER? ANY AND ALL HELP WOULD BE MUCH APPRECIATED!! THANK YOU, AND GOD BLESS!!</P>

Go to iboats.com and look under boating forums tab. You may find your answer there or you can post questions. Those guys are very knowledgeable about older motors. Hope this helps!
