Hi,great score!! I have a pair of these cool looking Javlins myself.These motors are bullet proof.Plan on redoing the mags.Don't cheap out.Pull the plates and do them right.Coils will probably be cracked.Napa has all the ignition parts in thier marine catalog as well as all the dealers and a host of others.Ignition parts were interchangable from 3 hp to 40 from 1954 to around 1974.Remember these were 6 volt systems.Starter will take 12 volts all day but you will smoke the electric choke so you may want to chand to a 1957 and later one.Good luck.Ken
