Curtis,
You should retrieve that St Lawrence engine, if for no other reason than to save it from scrap.
In its present condition, you might get $50 - $100.

To get it back to running condition, you'd likely spend several months and probably upwards of $500.

Where are you located?

Parts for the St Lawrence engines aren't available from a retail outlet BUT . . . BUT .. . .

There are many other guys on this web site that would be very pleased to assist you with parts you might need ( eg carb) or other kinds of help eg ignition if you got down, dirty and serious about restoring the engine.

And that is the BIGGEST payoff - you'd learn quite a lot about the design of the engine, how it was manufactured , what it took to keep it running etc etc .
In other words you'd get a great education - which is frankly worth far more than any amount of $$$.
And in the bargain,m you'd get to know some really swell people.

There are quite a few St Lawrence engines presently installed and running in boats in Ontario and in Louisiana.
I expect that most of the guys have collected spare parts that might be useful for you.

What side of Canada are you on,if on the far west I may be able to help you out. Always on the lookout for a new guy interested in old engines.

Its definately worth saving. If You decide its a bit far gone for you to bother let me know I would definately put the time in. Then again I like a challenge. I generally start with basket case engines, one that all restored ready to go just doesent do it for me. Sure your missing some parts but from what I saw your biggest problem is a carb which if you use a schebler would be available. Depends on if you want to make it exactly correct or if you want to make it work. Personally if I can I put them back original. But if the parts are not available I will make or find something that works without modifying the base exsisting engine.
