This may be a liitle off topic, if so I am sorry Jim this was the forum I thought it belonged in. I just Picked up a 1969 13' Sport Hull # 2A0160 (I determined it was a 1969 from the reference section)the boat has been sitting uncovered in a driveway for 12 years. It has a 1978 Evinrude 35HP model # 35852R with electric start. It has been sitting for 12 years I pulled the plugs out squirted some starting fluid in put the plugs back in turned the key (new battery) and she started!! I hooked up a fuel tank and pumped the bulb and the fuel runs out of the carb and into the bottom of the engine, can anyone recomend a good outboard person to clean the carb and tune it up in the Boston area?? This web site MADE me buy this boat, I bought a beat up Del Quay this summer and started reading this site and got hooked. I spotted the Whaler I just bought in a driveway in my town and just rang the doorbell asked if I could buy it, and the next day the called and I went right over and bought it. The tires where flat and it was grown in by some trees but she is now in my garage. I would like to get the engine back in shape, any recommendations would be great. Thanks

Howdy, Spindlepoint.

Sounds like a simple float/needle problem in the carb. Very easy to fix, and at the same time do some preventive maintenance.

A good factory Service Manual will cost you about $30. Carb, fuel pump and water pump overhaul parts maybe another $30-$40.

A basic tool kit is all you would need to do the work.

Then you will have a wrench you trust, who will deliver the engine promptly and not charge you $75 an hour to replace a lot of stuff that isn't broken. has manuals, and their Forum has some of the best OMC wrenches in the world to assist you with any problems. Ask for Joe Reeves.

Good luck.

replace the water pump impeller before you run that engine again. After 12 years, I'm sure that thing is way past toast.

I too have an older 13'. Wife says it's ugly. It gets me out to fish, but most importanly, gets me home dry!
