Antique Evinrude Speeditwin 6039 22.5hp

Postby Rapier » Sun Jul 30, 2017 5:26 pm

Got this recently. Is a 1946 model. These 6039s were made from 1939 through 1951, with 3 different lower units - mine is leftover military stock from the wartime Stormboat motors and is recognisable by the extra fins. It's mostly all there bar a missing original tiller and a broken cowling. As they made so many, parts are readily available. Not for the weak, this motor is big and heavy for such a small capacity.

The carb is straight forward and easy to service. The magneto is simplicity itself, a single set of points and coil producing both sparks. This has a modern condensor.

Do you need an original NOS decal? Its dark green though so maybe not correct for your year

Yes please, it's correct for '46 - the gold version is early models & I'd planned on stripping the remants to clean up the tank. I'll email you..

Dug into this a bit more today - doesn't look like it's done a lot of work, so no big surprises. Other projects on the go, so I might put it back together and leave it for winter.. and spray it in the spring.
