Hi Pol Cat,

I think it might be worth giving Clarence Schabel and/or his daughter (Robin) a call at the Sport Shop in Bonduel. They have quite a vintage inventory.

Also I believe the sled towards the back to be a 69. I used to own one.  :thumb:

Thanks for the reply! 
I have since gotten the, it is a 69 running.  I have recieved a model/year table
that says they are a 66 and 69. 
Why would someone register the sleds as a 67 and 70?  The gentleman bought them new so I believe the dealer
registerd them for him.
The hard part is to try now to register the 66 as a 66 not a 67 as it states on the registraion card.

That is good. Did you go for the one time Antique Registration for the 66?

Clarence down at the sport shop recently helped me out with some parts for a 75 Johnson, very knowledgable and sounded like he had a good assortment of Johnson/evinrude parts, among others.  I now have them on speed dial.

I got a set of rings for it from Northwest Marine in Michigan the motor starts but will not accelerate.
The previous person had broken the timing advance cam but I thought it might still have worked.
I found someone online that had a motor for parts and he is mailing me the part I need.
Hopefully it will be back on the snow when qwe get some :dancinbanana:
