Thanks Steve. I am not aware of needing anything at this point but when I start assembly I may find that I am missing something.

John,

Sorry late to the post.  I have several 1957 Johnson part motors, let me know if you have anything else you need.  By the way I have this part you are looking for.

Mark,
My house is on a hill. The basement and garage at the rear of the house are at ground level. In the front of the house the basement is below ground.

John, it must be a struggle to get all those motors up and down the stairs to your basement, do you have a service door you use?

Parts are looking good.

I have made a little progress on the painting. I applied zinc chromate to all the hanging parts and self etching primer to the mid section. The reason for the switch is because I ran out of zinc chromate. The weather here has been cold with high humidity which is slowing down the progress. I am also in the process of putting in a new cement driveway.

Merky,
That is a 1963 45HP Royal Scott made by McCulloch. I have had it since 2018 but have never worked on it.

Ray,
I opened up that powerhead several years ago and put in new rings and honed the cylinders.

Hey John,
Did you look inside that powerhead while you had it so far down?
