I am working on getting started on restoring a couple of my grandfathers old fiberglass boats. A 1957 Glasspar Sport Lido boat and 1958 Dorsett El Dorado.
The main reason I am so drawn to this project is the look of the mercury mark 58ae 50hp (serial # 12231123). Only problem is that it has been sitting out in the sun for the last 25 years. I really want to get this motor back into reliable condition as a starter to this project. I have been surfing the web looking for information on the possibility of a successful restore of this motor.
So I am hoping I can get some advise on how to start the resurrection of this motor. I have pulled the plugs and poured seafoam in the cylinders. it does turn over. If you have any advise on things to do please let me know it would be greatly appreciated.
About inboard or outboard motors.
