    Congrats on the purchase. If you get into a pinch for repair parts, I have a couple of friends that has a shop specializing in old motors. They are very knowledgeable about repairs and to me, priced very decent. Let me know if you need their address...I'd just as soon not post it as I'd probably violate some board rule. LOL

    I see he lied on one thing. He said it was from the seventies and then goes on to say they went out in 1957. Numbers don't compute in this book. You might be able to find some left over parts for that thing and I'll see if I have any thing on them.
    Good luck on it.

    I've got a 1953 Firestone 10 h.p. that was made by Scott-Atwater. They made a bunch of different outboards under different names and one is Corsair. You can still find new and used parts for them and they're real easy to work on. Here's a link to a place that has lot of new parts http://www.laingsoutboards.com/newp...4, Sears from 1964-69, Corsair, some Haiwatha and here's a link to a guy that specializes in them. He has used parts and he'd be your best bet for a new handle http://www.scottatwaterinfo.com/ Hope this helps and good luck! It also tells on there how to find out the year.

    Just wondering how you made out with your motor?
