The King's pump house Johnson just keeps giving.
This thing is 53 years old.
I have been using bits and pieces for years on different projects.
I sent the Cowl, dash, and seat to a guy I know in NY several years ago who was restoring one. I am down to just the front skis, track, Bogeys, and motor.
When I first got it home I started it with either and lighter flued, just to see if it would that's been like 8 years ago. Only god knows when it actually ran last. I tried to get it to run this winter I got it to fire a little. I want to make a snow dog out of the track assembly and would like to have the OMC twin power it.
There is like NO parts available for this thing. A guy can get old motors off eBay for parts but there old used parts. 
Mostly everything is in good shape and should run me for years in this application. I took apart the carb and cleaned it up everything looks fine. I need to make a primer for it apparently I sent it with the dash, I have a plan that should work coming. The stator, points, condenser all check out. It has TWO tractor like coils I would like to replace but there working for now. I did find new sparkplugs, the wires are wire and should work for another 50 years.
It has decompressors on each cylinder to help pull start it I got them hooked back up and working. There is a difference when you pull on the rope, I suppose -20* and pulling for twenty minutes it would make a difference. it is a 20 hp two stroke.
When I took it out I used the Sawzall and just whacked off the exhaust pipes, the only nubs now so it's a bit loud. 
Here it is running in the garage.
