Yikes! those old 70's early 80's Ted Williams/Eska/Gamefisher/Tecumseh outboards are flimsy, bargain basement, and tough to get parts for. (Basically a glorified lawn mower motor w/ a prop!) Trust me, I had an early 80's model, that I sold for 75 bucks a few years back!! There is a place in Grand Rapids, MI that sells a lot of old outboard parts.

Noooooooooooooooooooooo... Okay I Thank everyone for quick responses and spending time to help me out. I guess its gonna be gasket material and scalpel... The see through gasket type material is in good shape and I will re use it. The thing is is this old Asian gentleman wants me to get it running for him and It did run last year. And a stupid question but do these run on normal 50:1 2 stroke mix?

All those old outboards are 2-cycle. As I recall, that's a 50:1 mixture. And then gear oil in the lower unit. Two screws in the leg. Small vent at the top, and large drain at the bottom. As I remember, the carb had a red rubber "pump element" that would blow a hole in the side, and need replacing. Plus threads would strip on that thing. As I said before, a cheap, flimsy, air-cooled motor!

The red "Pump element" Is in really good shape thank goodness hopefully I can get it back together and it run like a champ and stay that way so I can get paid I am also rebuilding the 3 carbs that came off his 1988 mercury 80 orig it was hard to start and there was a fuel leak and replacing oil supply and fuel lines. This guy will be back in the water as soon as I get the parts and I will be rolling in some moolah!

Another old outboard parts company worth checking out...
www.discount-marine-parts.com/

Only other option is to do a search on Ebay!
