'73 Evinrude 18hp

2 posts in this topic

I have the motor listed in the subject. I spent a lot of time wrenching on it and got it running pretty good.

New impeller,

rebuilt Lower Unit,

fuel pump with only some test hours on it

rebuilt Carburetor.

New fuel hoses. Internal not from the tank to the motor.

This spring I had a problem that made me decide to quit wrenching and buy a motor I could fish with. So I bought an '83 Evinrude 15hp. Turns out the problem with the 18 was a pinhole leak in the bulb on the fuel line.

My question is this,What is a fair price for the 18hp?

I am not a pro mechanic so the hours into the labor on the motor are not factored into the price as far as I am concerned.

$300-$400. But, you never know who might come along...

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
