    My parents came out for Easter and my Dad brought me his old 30hp Evinrude. We got it when I was a kid about 20 years ago...man, its weird saying that! LOL! Anyway, it always ran great...well, it would always start right up & run great...for a while. Then, it would stop pumping water, over heat and shut down. Dad messed with it a little but could never get it running right and could never find the parts. Its been sitting in his garage for the last 20 years & he was ready to get it out of the way. I thought I would mess around with it and see what I could do. Now twenty years later its sure alot easier finding info & parts with the internet!

    The motor is a 1956 Big Twin 30hp. Should be fun! It would be great to get it running & be able to use it.

    If anyone has experience with this or similar motors I would appreciate any suggestions/hints.

    Thanks Randy! I stumbled across that website but haven't spent much time there. Looks like I should!
