Re: Johnson K50

It is a 1930 according to the serial number. I’m not familiar enough with them to know if the powerhead is correct for the year.

Re: Johnson K50

It is rated for 8 hp. American outboard manufacturers were in the midst of a horsepower race when the Johnson “12” was produced. The Outboard Boating Club of American (OBC) standardized horsepower ratings a few years later and the K-50’s rating was dropped down to a more realistic 8 hp. I thought th...

Re: Australian AMECO Seasprite Outboard

Beautiful job. What an interesting outboard. I love seeing all of the Europe and Australia specific outboards. They are certainly not something we ever get to see in North America.

Re: Johnson TS 20

You have a genuine war bride. Your motor serial number is American and comes up during a period of the war years when records are sparse. Serial numbers 460783-491736 were produced from 1943-45. During this period outboard production was only for the war effort and not available to private citizens....

Re: Britannia ID Help

I received a nice gift today from a fellow collector near me. It is a photo copy of the original Britannia booklet from 1932. It answers most of the questions I have.

That would be excellent. I’m sure I can help you out with a recast rope sheave. It might be awhile before we fire up the foundry. It’s springtime. Boating season is starting.

Re: Britannia ID Help

Thanks for the encouragement. My friend and I have a small backyard foundry where we make aluminium parts for our boat and motor projects. When it comes to motors I prefer to use original parts or castings made directly from them when possible. This is one of those rare occasions when I would make m...

Re: Britannia ID Help

I see what you mean. That might not be a deal breaker. I may be able to weld a piece onto it. I’ll have to investigate some options. There is an anchor point so all hope is not lost. Beautiful motor by the way. Very nice example.

Re: Britannia Light Twin flywheel removal

So if I understand correctly if you remove the four screws and turn the flywheel nut counter clockwise the top plate will come off to allow you access to the points. But if you don’t remove the screws the entire flywheel will pop off. That’s good to know and very interesting. Aluminium welds are wea...
