I have a Wizard motor. Model WG4, serial number 554795. How do I find out the horsepower? I know it is a 1947 model.
According to my documentation, it is a 1953 model. It is 6 horsepower, 11 cubic inch displacement. Fuel to oil ratio is 12:1.
Thank you! We just thought it was a 1947 model. Thanks again for the info.
Perhaps a little heavy on oil...3/8 pint of TCW 3 per gallon figures
out to 6/128 or about 1 part oil to 22 parts gasoline.
I would imagine 12:1 fuel ratio would be very hard to crank, and if you did get it to crank, it would leave a very oily trail behind the boat.
With modern two cycle oils you could easily get away with using as little as 32:1 fuel/oil mix, but the best mix for the environment and still be good for the motor would probably be around 24:1.
Looking on the tables on Jason's website, the original mix was 3/4 pts. SAE-30 per gallon of gas. outboard 2 cycle oils are much better at lubricating than the old motor oils could.
