Bernie

Thank you for the heads up Wayne

Recommended Posts

I made the trek to New Liskeard this morning to the estate sale that Wayne had brought up here a couple weeks back.

Among the many outboards and thousands of other items I came home with the nicest engine at the sale.

A 1958 Johnson 18 HP in very good condition. Even the applique on the front of the hood is clear and not cracked.

And a bonus I wasn't expecting until I seen it. It's an electric start.

I'm as happy as a pig in ****. :D

I'll check out the coils and replace the water pump this week and maybe change it over to a single line fuel tank.

I can't wait to give it a try.

Thank you again Wayne!

Anytime my friend. Great to be able to help out two friends at once... that doesn't happen very often....the deceased and the lively happy camper!!

 

Walter was a GREAT guy... he'd be really happy to know that it's you Bernie, part of the Giesler family, that has it now !

 

We've gotta thank Leah for the original information as well.. lol

 

What else did you buy Bernie.. I'm kinda glad I couldn't attend.. lol

There was a lot of stuff there Wayne.

Picked up some odds and ends but restrained from buying more.

There were a couple of other outboards I was interested in but a lightning storm complete with hail came over just as I finished the buy on the 18.

Quickly loaded up my prize into the truck and headed home, satisfied. :good:

My dad will be happy more space won't be needed in the shed too.
