Thank you for your question.

I can understand wanting to no the fuel to oil 2 cycle ratio for this old engine.

With out a model number I am guessing that the 3.5 hp motor may be a 217.585230 or something close to that.

It should be 32:1 2 cycle oil to gas ratio.

These engines may not run very well on the alcohol based fuels we have now. Fuel lines and fuel pump diaphragms will suffer unless you use some conditioner like Sta-bil for alcohol based fuels.

If you could please reply with the model number from the transom mount on the engine I will be glad to give you a more precise answer.

Without the model number I will not be able to search for a manual for you. However the motor being that old will make it difficult to find one.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Thank you for your request for an outboard manual David. I am sorry but I was not able to find a manual for this old Sears outboard motor. I did find the part number: 96836, but was not able to find the manual. All I can tell you is that this motor is very small and produces only 1.2 hp., and was made in 1975. I am sorry that I was not able to help you with your request. Sam A.

Thank you for your question.

I will be happy to assist you. I searched for a service manual but did not have any luck. I even looked on line for something but only had a few hits but not for a manual. The spark plug should be gapped at .030 and the points should be set at .020.

If you need further assistance, please reply below with more details.

Thank you for using Manage my life.
