Ok you`ve got your vintage outboard and it dont work right,quick test/tip to see if it`s repairable.
Take a 9v battery (the square type found in smoke alarms)
peel the battery sticker off inside the battery compartment (if its still there)


Outboard engine  ASCRAFT3

push the battery connections onto the brass connections arrowed this will bypass the swtch

Outboard engine  ASCRAFT2

you may may need to flick the propeller in either direction.NOTE ONLY APPLY THE 9v BATTERY FOR A FEW SECONDS AT A TIME AS THE INCREASE VOLTAGE COULD DAMAGE THE MOTOR.
If it spins then the motor is ok try with a correct battery fitted and normal operation ie swing the clip up

Outboard engine  ASCRAFT4

If the motor does`nt spin check and clean the contacts for the switch(accessable through the slot underneath.

Outboard engine  ASCRAFT1

I`ve used this on several non-workers bought off ebay etc and not had one not work yet.

If it still doesn't work test the battery by putting the contact on your tongue. Laughing What a Face
