    I just bought this yesterday from a guy that does house clean outs. The owner of the house is 91 years old and told the workers that the Outboard had been in the cellar for 48 years and that he bought it in 1970 ,used it one season in fresh water and then sold the boat to a friend and kept the motor . When I recieved the motor from the guy that does the house clean outs there were no controls and he wanted 900.00 for it. It came with two metal fuel tanks ,the stand in the photo,and 12 cans of 1970 50:1 cans of oil .I offered him 300.00 and he accepted the offer. see photos

    I remember the monkey nuts being in the control in the 1968 55 hp Johnrudes when I was working on them, so it's possible you were looking in the wrong place in the parts books, fyi

    It this was an original Triumph 55 Short Shaft I wouldn't be surprised if BRP offered to buy it from you. If you decide to post it for sale on eBay sometime I would expect a bidding war from collectors. Again, what a find! The OEM gas tanks and 50:1 cans are worth a lot too!

    Bombardier Recreational Products. A Canadian company who manufactures business jets, train cars, buses, 3-wheel motorcycles, mining, etc., around the world. Mostly, but not limited to, transportation related manufacturing. They bought the little that was left of OMC (Johnson/Evinrude), mostly just the names & some buildings, when they went out of business & comepletely bankrupt. The bank that owned them put the remnants out for auction, which failed, so a second auction was presented & BRP purchased the assets. No relationship at all really, but are attempting to create a new history for themselves in the marketplace, using OMC's history.

    Oh ? I see Thank you for your response Fuji . I recently bought a 1972 9.5 hp johnson with no hrs on it in nice condition. My camera crapped out on me or I'd post it. I have been servicing outboards in the same location for 37 years and never had these condition motors come through the door till this year, huh, go figure. Chip
