Not sure of the paint color code for the 57 Evinrude. The motor cover is black and white, but the lower unit is a medium grey...


looks good Trey, i like the handles......now is the time if you need or want to use glazing putty to clean up any sore spots you dont like.......reprime the spots, then from there i giver a good rub with the green scotch brite pads.....i dont get crazy, as it is a working, under the water unit, prone to scuffs the first time out.....have fun, glad you found your color........

I'm not ready to invest in a HVLP paint sprayer yet... what's the best method for spray painting the Lower Unit, Prop, and Prop Boss after the Etching primer is down? Rustoleum High Gloss with a clear coat?

Trey,

If you notice the one end is cut to different diameters. So from the bottom up you just slide it into the shift rod hole and hit it with a hammer a couple of times and it pops right out. To re-install the bushing and seal you put it over the end, the new o-ring will hold it on and you put it back in the hole and hit with a hammer a couple of times and back in it goes.

I am a believer in having the right tool for the job...

Made my gasket. We inherited this hole punch from my uncle who worked for South Central Bell.

As you can see, it punches clean through most materials.

Made by Sargent & Co in New Haven Conn.

I pulled out the shift rod seal, expecting to find a squashed donut under it, but this one looks different... or really, really squashed.

Is the seal on the 57 Evinrude shift rod single use?


Trey,

Here is the tool I got from Dan Gano for removing the shift rod seal. Was about $15.00. You use it to both remove and re-insert the seal. Takes about 5 minutes to do both...
