Is it true that you can change the carb on a 1957 18hp Johnson so that it will run close to 33 hp??? If so, what do I need to look at?

Don't count on it. Call Sea Way Marine and see if they have anything that will fit that year engine. Cool

On another note, can a tiller version of an 1957 18 hp Johnson be converted to controls easily? I see a lot of tiller models for sale but I need controls as I am restoring a 1954 Arkansas Traveler aluminum runabout. I would dearly love to put a vintage motor on it but I'm held hostage by Pennsylvanian fish commission lakes that only allow 20hp. Any thoughts? Thanks!
