    I recently got a 1964 evinrude yahtwin 3 hp that runs great on my 12 foot jon. My question is on the shaft behind where the bracket holds it on the boat it looks like a grease fitting? if so what type? I have never noticed them on other motors, but I just checked and my other evinrude also has it.
    Thanks chip

    Thats there to grease the swivle shaft to let the motor turn. Grease it with marine grade grease and you will do fine.
