ok thanks, I’ll hope for the best when I hook cables up and go from there. I guess I was wondering if it would make a difference trying to put motor in forward/reverse is where I was going with all the questions.
It’s what I have until I can find a 56’ cowling assembly.
I am not sure if the cable locks on a 1956 OMC motor are in the exact same place as a 1957/1958 OMC motor but they should be very close. I have run my Vagabond with a 1955 25, a 1957 18 and a 1957 OMC 35. Each motor required a slight adjustment of the plastic roller on the cable to make them line up perfectly.

Just wanted to say thanks for advice on this from all of you!
from locomotion, unclbuz, oldlure, boat boy for links/advice and giving me idea of what the hell I had to do …too JR offering to send me a fuel pump! Sorry if I forgot anyone that helped there’s a few of you on here.
all much appreciated truly gave me some tools to go into project with some confidence. Motor runs good with plate I made.. I was concerned that the factory design of transfer port cover is far from flat like plate I made. And seems the factory cover would direct air flow to piston much better that a flat plate. Motor has ran at least 1/2hr (at idle) as smooth as I could’ve ever hoped, only time will tell once it’s at high speed. The 3gph will be burnt in no time I hope!
