The close up video shows what looks like a good water flow to me.

An infrared thermometer on the head would reveal some interesting data.

For sure. I put a new impeller in first thing. It just doesn't look like much water.

No matter how much it's making now, if you have not just installed a new impeller after "who knows how long", it's time to put one in B)

The Lark Lives!

I'm a bit surprised. It started on the second crank. I have no idea how may years it has been since it ran. Rebuilt carb, new coils, new starter.

Loud and smoky, but alive. It's even making water, but how much is enough?

My 62 Lark has foam inside the cover.

Is that standard?


The later ones do. My 64 Big Twin has foam in it.

Liar!

Evinrude didn't make a 1962 35hp.
