nice! I have a 1994 Evinrude 50, just did refurb/rebuild. All new everything that could be replaced.

I saw the engine and used that as a date reference point for hubs.

A pair of those hubs for 37.99 with free shipping. At that price i would buy one more, mount it to my spare and bolt it to my trailer.

I like the spare tire holder idea but they already have one on the trailer.

While the new hubs are coming on a slow truck from California, I'll be out turkey hunting most of this week after tomorrow.

I thought I'd share a few pictures of the Pontoon rehab.

The motor was a little rough looking, so besides getting it running, I did some repainting.


My little dog photo bombed the cover picture. lol She does that kind of stuff.

Can't fish all the time, so I welded up a bracket so we can fire up the grill and have a bite to eat.

Here's a picture of the layout of the boat, and the canopy opened up to get out of the sun. It's a 20 foot angler model. Live well under the bench seat.

I have a magna grill I can clamp on the rail for mine, it comes in handy when you have to 'filet and release'.
You premix or using the VRO?

Thanks. Just need to test drive the rig close to home, then head North. Lakes up there still under 24" of ice, and they got 24" of snow last weekend. Bad spring this year, we are in the 92 day of January. Lol. Can't wait to fish out of it.

advice: dump the VRO before you pull it North.

Oil side of mine died 5 miles from ramp, and idled it in, cost me a $1200 rebuild.
$75 in a new pump and mix your own will save you the headache. Trust me when I say it will break, and it will be at the least convenient time.

BTW I use evinrude XD 30 oil; the red stuff. I found a 6 gallon deal at https://domo-online.com/
Bought 6 gallons for what I paid for 3 gallons last year on amazon.

I see a new VRO pump is VERY expensive, like $465 expensive.

http://www.marineengine.com/newparts...num=OMC5007421

Did you remove the VRO pump, or leave it in place and just premix in your fuel tanks?

Universal 3 fitting pump for 50hp or larger, vacuum pulse line from pulse limiter (on block aft and below starter) to pulse side, fuel in and out. Cap off the old oil line at cowl and yank the tank and line for the oil tank. Premix 50:1.
need pump, 2-3 ft of fuel line and new clamps. 30 minutes to install. There's a few 'kits' for around $140 that have a bracket and lines/clamps. Hard to swallow knowing pump alone is around $60ish.
There's a 4 wire connector to the VRO pump, and a 2 wire to the oil tank, unplug em and move on.

Got it.

Good news the new hubs showed up at my doorstep today. You guys done good, they are an exact match! Thanks again for that.

I cleaned the oil and grease off the new hubs, and painted them up to match the trailer. I won't be able to install them till next week. Turkey hunting the next 4 days. By then, it should warm up and melt this darn snow.
