Probably the best place to try to pin down which motor you want is The Antique Outboard Motor Club at: believe the first Big Twin 25 hp came out in the 51 model year.I believe the first motors were a sort of drab non metalic blue.And soon became a lighter metalic blue. I believe both styles had relatively simple contrasting lettering on the side.I believe around 55 The lettering was placed in a white flash on the side.In 56 the blue became a deeper blue and the flash more flashy,and they were rated at 30 hp.I may be a little off on the years/color combo but the progression is pretty close.The big twins were darn good motors almost indestructable ,with a little care.And you may be surprised that many routine parts are still available.
