getting closer... the motor is running like a top in the bucket.... and thanks to Jennings for helping me rivet on the new name plates from Rick. Although Jennings wasn't the one up in the bow in a position I haven't been in in years lol.. the things we do for these boats

Yes I have the round plastic insulators that screw into the holes but I haven't checked to see if the harness will reach from the other side. I do know that my key switch is as far to the right as it can get so the harness would have to run the entire length of the dash. Its not in the middle like some switches are
Locomotion wrote: Good looking engine in those photos, is it ready to go?
Yes the 57 Lark should be ready to go. That's the one I got from Mike (Buzzerbaits) a couple years ago. It purred like a kitten then but you never know. Its been sitting in the garage, I pull the rope from time to time to turn it over. Hopefully it will start right up.... The wiring harness needs some help for sure
I believe I put coils and points in that motor a few years ago.
Awesome!!! I appreciate that Dan.... Hopefully you did a good job .... haha ... I know you did
No Dan. This is not that motor. We put coils and points in my 56 30 hp Lark. Jay's motor is a 57 35 hp. Runs great...
Same here with my 55DR. Except I think I ran shift and throttle through a single hole, leaving one hole unused (and two unused on the other side of the boat.) I used the advice from someone here (sorry, but I can't remember who) to run electrical through Pex tubing (1/2", I think?), which snaps nicely into place underneath the gunwales on the side. I think this may be what Boatboy is describing. (Maybe he's the one I got the tip from.)
