I own a 1974 riveted aluminum Ouachita. After being stuck out on the lake in relentless March winds and only a trolling motor that was just not powerful enough to get me back to the loading ramp before running out of battery power, I decided to bite the bullet and get a gas ouboard. The motor is actually made by Parsun for Coleman Outboards. At full throttle it pushes at a pretty good clip, just enough to create a steady wake. I had some trouble getting it started the first time out, but after inspecting the spark plug I discovered some black gunk in the gap between the electrode. After cleaning the plug off with my shirt and putting it back in, it has been starting and running like a champion. And since its a four stroke, I dont have to mix the gas and oil which is very convenient.
After picking motor up i added 10w30 motor oil set motor on back of 14 foot aluminum fishing boat and started the break in i used a 40 gallon metal trash can 1 hour at 1/2 speed then 1 hour at 3/4 speed motor never stumbled once only used 2 1/2 fill ups of gas for break in the price of this motor was EXCELLENT and i did do some shoping and after all i grew up on COLEMAN so i went with what i know best GREAT JOB COLEMAN
I put gas and oil in the motor and it starts on the first pull! great motor for the price!
after powershaft was fixed goes really good coleman fixed all but took a while. now on rivers with a motor that will get up and go. better than Minn-kota i have. Dan
I have a 12' V bottom aluminum boat. This motor pulls me and my brother and fishing equipment(600lbs.) very good. Just tried it out sunday and it runs great. Good price too.. If you live in Texas or Missouri make sure and have the boat motor to the store. BRING your paper work from Parks and Wildlifewith you. You will need a person to sign the paper work to apply for a title. Required in these states. Also take your reciept and owners maual with a photo of the serial number from WalMart to the Parks and Wildlife tac office to apply for title. Really good motor. Have fun
I own thethe coleman f5bms. Waterpump went due to seaweed. Coleman doesn't make parts. Through research I learned that coleman is made identicle to yamaha f4 series. I ordered a waterpump kit $31.64.. (Defender.com) It matched up and I'm back on the lake.
