Helllo all. I'm expecting a Homelite55 to turn up in a few days. I don't know condition or year but expect it to be a relatively early Homelite.

It seems that support for these motors may be fading away? Several of the sites that used to offer parts and such aren't up these days.

In any case, what is the best source for a manual and a water pump impeller?

I plan to use this motor on a 17 ft Crestliner Dane, which has a shallow v at the transom. It's an aluminum boat but a rather heavy one--data sheets say 800 pounds. Year is 1970.

Thanks for any guidance.
