It looks like a two-line Johnson tank fitting. One line for air pressure and one for fuel.

Which is a rare tank and worth a lot more then you paid for to a guy needing the old pressure tank.

i just saw 50 cent on the metal tank and the new plastic are $15+. Rare meaning the fitting is going to cost me huge $ or someone may want to buy or trade because it doesn't fit with my 2 hole johnson fitting because there is like a 3rd metal post

Rare because Johnson/Evinrude upgraded their fuel delivery system over 30 years ago. But there's plenty of those motors and tanks around. I have a 1956 5.5 Johnson that I can idle down slow enough to read the words on the flywheel.

I've seen used tanks for around $35. If you clean your up you could maybe get more. These tanks have washers/gaskets/o-rings under the heads of the screws that hold down the top assembly. You probably need to replace them as they are key to the tank maintaining air pressure.

I have the exact same metal tank, hook-up w/ gas gauge. I looked at mine and it's a complete match with that large round post, but my fitting goes around that post. Strange that you say it didn't work? My tank/OMC popular fitting fits my late 60's 4hp, 9.5hp, '74 15hp and mid-1980's larger outboards too.

I had never noticed that post until you posted the picture and looked at my tank.

In the family we have the really old motor w/tank (1950's) with the double hose.

That's not the old 2 line pressure tank. First of all, there is no primer on the tank. If you guys can remember, there was a small black button that you had to depress several times. Second, the 2 lines were side by side, with the "locking clip" in the middle, just above the lines. Third, the cap was much larger than the one shown. I have 2 of those old tanks out in the shed, and no, they are not for sale wink.gif

DeanoB, you can file off your fitting to make it fit this tank. There are a couple or three versions of the OMC female fitting.

boatfixer, I haven't seen one of those old tanks in a while and on closer inspection, you are correct.

I suppose it's possible that he may have an aftermarket fitting such as attwood, sierra, or aquapower. Those aren't always a perfect fit.

      Rough weekend at the lake... but still better than any day at work! I managed to get out for a few hours Saturday morning and then got off the lake when the storms rolled in and stayed off. I threw for muskies for a few hours but didn't move any and then switched to smallies and boated a few on rock piles.  We were stuck for a while on Saturday with the road near Camp Vermilion washed out. Looks like the whole area got quite a bit of water. How'd everyone else fare?

      Does anyone know if you can get a digital thermostat for the roof top AC units? I have a coleman mach 3 plus. The fan constantly stays on and is super loud. But it does work really well for cooling. Any help would be appreciated.

      Spent the weekend on Ottertail, fishing tough. Waves 1 to 3 ft. 4" rain Sat. night, on/off rain all weekend. Caught a few biggest 18". Water crystal clear 15+ ft, even with waves, due to millions of Zebra Mussel in lake. Weeds and clam shells had many Zebras attached. Still better than working.

      My intent is not to bash here. Many Rapalas are great lures but a heads up I had 5 of them on the casting deck of the boat in the heat within 3 hours every one of the split from the heat!!! Wow that was money down the tubes. I have never had that happen. Also it is never a good idea to slap a lure to get weeds off I'm aware of that nonetheless my bride slapped her's to get a weed off nothing violent but what she got back was a lure in pieces. I love many of the lures but wont be buying any off those again. I have had the lips pull out on the Shad Raps before. My favorite is the Fat raps those are indestructible.

      It happens.  If you timed if post-spawn, its definitely tougher.  It takes them a while to recover and get into their summer pattern.
    • delcecchi
      Stovetop?  Walleye on west end is tough because there are fewer and they are mostly larger fish that don't seem to behave the same way as smaller ones.

      Pike should be working well on the deep weedlines leading into the two slop bays that Del mentioned. They are commonly calle "The Nursery". Largies should be anywhere in the weeds. Del also hit the nail on the head about the Windsock island and the bay behind it. The windsock island area can be a good walleye producer in the early mornings and sometimes in the evenings. Don't forget to try the larger "bay" (really more of an indentation) past the Windsock island and its associated bay. Lots of boulders in there so be careful, you'll see some shiny rocks! I've had good success in there  for both species of bass and pike, lots of nice sunnies too. There is a reef that runs from the point directly out across Norwegian from the resort marina and runs from there to the other shore running to the northeast. Good spot for the evening walleye bite. You'll probably also want to try fishing the Merry Go Round and the Stovepipe on Wak-Em-Up Bay for walleyes and smallies. I'll try to post more info when I have a bit more time!
