I have what I think is a 1963 3HP Gale Buccaneer outboard motor (model number 3D-19B) that once belonged to my father. It is in relatively good working order apart from a slightly bent "mixture control shaft" and the "mixture control knob" twisting on the shaft slightly and also rattling itself lean/rich when running.

I would like to get some type of a service manual for this motor or at least talk to someone who has the same motor so I could confirm its year, exchange pics, etc.
Anyone have any info/history/manuals for this motor or know where I could find any?

Also, I'm a bit of an "outboard motor amateur" and I'd like to take good care of this engine, so I may preserve it as long as possible. Any suggestions for winter storage or anything else would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
