I have come across a wizard Super 5 WH6 and am currently trying to rebuild it. All I need still is an impeller and possibly a water pump for a spare. I know nothing of these motors and hardly nothing about outboards. Is there a website that I can order parts for this thing. Mine is manufactured by Western Auto. Thank you for any help in Advance.
Yep, parts are available. Yours was actually made by Mercury, but sold at Western Auto. It is based on the Mercury Mark 6 and uses the same impeller. Here is one place you can buy it:
Also, if you haven't changed an impeller on that model before, get ready for fun. You might want to invest in a old Mercury repair manual covering the 1955 time period, as that is one of the more challenging designs to work on (in my opinion).
I have already tore everything apart and was pretty successful in doing so. It took a little thinking on how to figure out how to remove the lower unit. All in all it's a neat little motor. Thank you for your very usefull information!
When putting it back together, tilt the motor so it is almost upside down. It will help you line up the drive shaft with the crankcase. You'll do a bit of hunting and pecking until it finally *thuds* down into place ... unless you are a lucky man. The other challenge will be to keep the water pump housing together while you are maneuvering everything back into place. I actually used a little fishing line to help hold the pump together during the process.
Make sure you put a lot of tension on the neutral clutch cable when reattaching. If it doesn't want to go into neutral, you'll need to pull the wire a bit tighter. The good thing is that you don't have to worry about tightening the cable until everything down below is reassembled.
