Question and Answers

Q:

The manual talks about the importance of using leaded fuel which is not available . Any special instruction on the mix to use? 217585870 Craftsman Sears 7.5 h.p. outboard motor

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I would suggest using 16 ounces of TCW-3 rated 2 cycle oil for a 6 gallon tank of 87 octane unleaded fuel gasoline. This is a 24:1 ratio.

It really does not matter if you use leaded or unleaded and you do not need a lead additive. Leaded fuel had its own problems with outboard engines. The only unleaded fuel at the time this motor was made was the white gas used for camp stoves.

I hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

Q:

ted williams 7.5hp 217-58587-0 217585870 Craftsman Sears 7.5 h.p. outboard motor

A:

You have a very unusual symtom. If it will start start in gear it should start in nuetral. Also, running the engine out of water will damage the water pump impeller.

I suspect since it will start and then die, it could be a electrical issue, carburetor issue or mechanical. We do not have a service manual on this older Ted Williams boat motor. I suggest taking the boat motor to a boat motor mechanic with the experience and knowledge to properly diagnose and repair your boat engine. You also may find some answers and help here on the internet.
