    Do you know where new philadelphia is? I have a small repair shop here and do work on small engines. I would be more than happy to work on your motor. :) I'm not sure where you are located but e-mail me and we can work something out. :D

  4. A lot of how successful you will be depends on how old the motor is.
    I had my Dad's 1948, 5 HP Johnson Seahorse rebuilt this winter. The mechanic worked on it during the slow winter months but I was in no hurry. Needed parts were no longer available and had to be made by hand or improvised. Motor now runs perfect. :)
