I haven't worked on outboard motors much and was wondering if a person can find the year they were made somewhere. I have an old Buccaneer( don't think it not spelled right) I think it is around a 1954. I need two coils for it. Napa has some that look just like it that are for Johnson outboards. I think I should replace the water pump also since the motor has sat for many years. The second motor is an old Mercury. It has no recoil starter, no gear box, just turn the motor all the way around to go backwards. I think someone might have painted it sometime. It is light blue. I would like to know the year just for my own benifit. I have it running. Any help will be appreciated.
