can someone tell me anything about this like year etc whee can I get parts I may need:confused2:
Bill There is a model number on that motor some where, get it and post it and I'll get you info on what you need.
Thank you bubba. I should've known to do this to begin with!
* model # FD-13 R *
* SERIAL# 1930925 *
original list price 395.00
max rpm 4500
weight 77 lbs
wow thanks, right down to the price.... be nice if a new 18 hp was still 395 huh? lol
are basic parts still available for this motor I wonder.....
Points and condensers and coils can be gotton and also carb kits. That was one of the first engines that came out with an actual roller bearing. The rule of thumb is to run the mix at 24 to 1 in any motor made before 1964 but on that engine and the 35 h/p in the same year you can run the mix at 50 to 1.
oh yeah, :beat_brick: I forgot about the points and condenser dayz, not too long after the invention of the sails and gasoline. :roll_eyes: didnt even cross my mind about that. Well, think this thing would be a worth while motor to crank wrenches on? and who's got these parts? johnson? or will it be aftermarket? thanks- Bill
The parts will most likely be after market. As being worth it that would be entirely up to the wrench puller. I have a 59 ,35 h/p that I have let set for a long time and if you may need a coil or two I may be persuaded to pull the flywheel off and send them to you. But On another note as for value they don't have any collectors value.
okay, let me just dig into this thing some... try to get a better idea of what I'd be dealin' with here if I feel can make it reliable reasonably$$$- I'll do it! If you got any tips- I'm all ears. I'll keep ya posted, and if I need those parts I'll be hollerin' also.
Digging this thing out and looking at it AGAIN. Is this a different type fuel system?
At the fuel line connector, there is a fuel "prong" and an AIR prong.
Some guy told me this motor takes an electric fuel pump:confused2: is that right?
I want to get this thisg going... the guy said it'll take around a 200 dollar fuel tank with the pump?????????
If you can find one for 200 you would be lucky. I have the instructions written down in my many disks and floppies to chang that over to a fuel pump type system. I'll start digging and see if I can locate it.
i am thinking the original fuel tank has a primer like a coleman lantern to get the fuel up to the carb and after it starts crankcase pressure pressurizes the tank.. no electric pump needed.... i have had a few of those era motors over the years they can be as reliable as any other... check the wireing and make sure the insulation isnt flakeing off...
I eyeballed it the hell out of it, It's in excellemt shape... Wire insulation is perfect, everything is there, It has spark, and with a little shot of fuel it'll sputter.... What's the solinoid on the choke?
Bubba, I don't have the tank, and I'm Very interested in a Conversion... so I'd appreciate you checking that out for me!!!
What's the solinoid on the choke?
It should be an electric choke.
Ok, looking at it... looks like you manually choke it, and the solenoid automatically pushes the choke off?
Man there is a 5 male electric connection... I NEED a diagram to tell whats what here. Seems like a pretty darn fancy little motor.... elec. start and choke ("pull" off?) I'd really like to get this thing going, but I DON'T want to spend those big bucks on the fuel system.....
if its the the 2 line pressure sys there is some tanks on ebay around 20-30 bucks bids right now
I wanted to bump this so it's not forgotten.
