    I found this Johnson outboard today. I believe it is a PO15 Heavy Duty Twin built between 1941-1949. Ever seen one or know anything about vintage Johnson's?

    I like it. My uncle has an old hand crank trolling motor on his shop wall.

    I like to look at those old boat anchors. They really look better on the back of an old boat.

    Neat motor, clean gas tank and fuel line. Carb float might need unsticking prob. cork. It will prob. run. Water pump is I believe in the prop. Start and it runs, no neutral or reverse if I remember correctly. Lightly sand points . MIke
