Year/Fuel Mixture

I have a ~1950 Evinrude. Serial number 5516-06093. I’m in search of the actual year and fuel mixture ratio. Possibly parts/maintenance manual. Any help or possible web site Info would be greatly appreciated.

5516- is a  5.5hp from 1958.  16:1 fuel oil mix which is 1/2 pint per gallon or 1 quart to a 4 gallon tank.
