Ive got a 1950s Buccaneer 5hp motor that Id like to test. It supposedly run the last time it was at the water, a couple of years ago. But I have heard that story one too many times and take it for granted. I want to get it running at my house before taking it to the water but I dont know exactly how. The main problem is I cant tell where the water intake is located. I have earmuffs for my bigger motor that I could use on it but I dont know where to put it. So Ive been told I could put it in a barrel of some sort full of water. Does anyone here have experience with this method? This motor is pretty heavy so what kind of barrel could I find? Is there a better way besides putting it on the boat and going to the water? Thanks in advance for the help; you guys are always big help.
