Hi all. I have acquired a small tinny with an old 6hp Evinrude outboard. The engine looks almost new with very little signs of wear and tear and seems to run well with what fuel is currently in the tank. The Model number is A E6BACEC. Is anyone able to answer a few questions for me:
1. Can you determine the year and any other features from the model number?
2. What is the fuel to oil mixture I should be using?
3. What sort of grease is best for the steering bushes etc.?
4. Does anyone have a copy of an owners manual available for this engine.
5. Any other tips and tricks to keep this little gem in prime condition?
Thanks in advance. It's been a couple of decades since I've tinkered with outboards.
