I can get you started with 38 page instruction book if you don't have one. It contains clearances, carb manual etc. (but no bolt torque reccomendations)
I pulled my WMG (magneto)[ The G is for gearbox] fisherman out today to run at a power show tomorrow. Oops no start-- no compression-- stuck valve.
Don't run it often enough!
It (was) easy to start and ran fine.

I don't have the right boat for it. My 18 foot power dory has a Palmer BH.

I would love an instruction book on this engine. How can get a copy? The engine is striped and I have been cleaning the hard packed mud in the water jacket. I am lucky it has not seen salt water.

I'm working on a Universal Fisherman for a boat I am restoring with some friends. It has good compression and I got the magneto rebuilt by a local guy that knows that stuff so it has good spark.
I finished rebuilding the carb and am casting one broken elbow in the water circulation system in bronze. What I am missing now is a fuel tank, a gear box and perhaps some pictures of how this should look when all set up and any literature available. I would sure appreciate any guidance.

You can use the search function that is at the top.
There are some pics and quite a bit of information here on OME.
Hope this helps

I've got one, complete, that I'll likely be partng out as it has bad mains and con rod bearing. .015" on both mains, previous owner tried pouring the con rod and made a real poor job of it. If I could find a good set of mains I would rebuild it. Anyone with good bearings to sell or looking for anything but the gearbox message me.
Thx,

I have for sale a Universal Fisherman one cylinder engine with Wico EK magneto. Engine is complete with trans, carb, mag, etc. Mag is hot, the only thing wrong with the engine is the oil dipper came off and starved the engine for oil which caused it to melt the Babbitt out of the con rod. My father owned this engine at the time, and hired someone to pour a new bearing, but it is not a good pour. The oil ring was also seized in the groove due to oil starvation and broke when taken out. Engine has compression, but needs the oil ring, the con rod bearing needs final fitting, and mains and con rod bearings need to be lockwired. Trans appears to be in very good condition. The only crack was on the water outlet fitting on top of the head, which has an old blazed repair. Pics to email, it won't let me post them here for some reason.
Thanks for looking.
