Just acquired a 1965 MFG Edinboro with the original Mercury 650. Boat is in awesome shape after a good clean up but I know the motor has not been run for many years. Does anyone have any tips on starting a motor like this out of the water.
Thanks in advance.

it will need a good going over, water pump impeller , fuel lines, clean carbs, check wiring, nothing major . then you can think about starting it.

I concur - you can give it a physical first. Check for spark, compression, and water in the gear oil.
