1  Vintage Australian Outboard Runabouts / Information Wanted / Oil Leak on: October 22, 2021, 03:29:35 PM
Hi all .
One of my 70 hp Johnsons is showing greenish oil from weep holes .
As I only run the motors in fresh water tanks they are never in gear so there is no risk of damage .
Do I have to replace gear seals ?
Picture attached .
Thanks Neil

I concur Mercman !
It has been an amazing accumulation of photos. It takes me back to the time we instigated a guessing comp as to how many were produced .
It was David's idea but having communicated with him years later on the subject he could not recall it .Something about red wine Grin
I pitched in with 380 having no idea whatsoever but given the numbers located and such a beautiful craft that they would have a relatively low rate of attrition my stab (hate that word )  Wink
 could be in the vicinity .
And True Blue is very impressive .How does he do it ?
And your function to check and edit duplication is equally so .
Congratulations fellow members and if it were not for this topic we would be in The Doldrums .

Decided to connect the American instruments I purchased years ago but did not know how to proceed with wiring .
Recently found out that OMC motors have a three pin socket at the controls with a rev sender wire.
Bought two second hand looms (twin motors ) and an additional tach and gps speedometer .
Have successfully connected everything including new nav light wiring and a cluster of switches/accessories .
All these into the dash i built some years ago ? 3/4 inch maple with removable top and front radio panel .
Benefit of two motors is that I could plug both tachos into same motor and got identical readings .
Pics of the result .

The Catalinas don't look as good without their top screen do they ?
I recall the lovely turquoise shot you posted previously of one .There is also nice footage Catalina that colour on youtube .
I'm interested in the sense that this design in fibreglass in the 50's led to the production and style of my beloved 22ft plywood SX 2 in 1961 .
She was scratched from last years  Sydney Classic Boat Show due to covid.
Just about completed wiring new instruments and will post soon .
Everyone loves picture don't they Guy .

Cheers
