Exclamation Re: Champion boat motor

Does the engine have a horse shoe shaped tanl? I had a champion, it was a sweet running engine. As Arlie said, 16:1 (1 cup to 1 gal) SAE 30 Non Detergent oil. DON"T use the modern oils in it! It does not have roller bearings, just plain bronze, both on the mains and the con rod. It will smoke a bit until it warms up. Nice find!

There is no problem with using the modern 2-cycle oils in the old plain bearing motors. Just be sure and use the original recommended mix ratios... 16 to 1 will be good for your motor.
The new oils will run much cleaner, less smoke and plug fouling. I use the new stuff in all my outboards from 1920's thru 1960's with no problem. The old ones run as rich as 8:1 with clean plugs.

I have quite a few parts for a couple of model's of champion motors. Also a couple complete motors, both styled & unstyled. On the parts,the main thing would be trying to find where I put them years ago. .....
