Amazing they lasted as long

I've got an old green 1955 Johnson 10 HP twin 2 stroke outboard, still in 
excellent running condition with only one water pump impeller replaced, 
lower unit 90 SAE oil every season.  It originaly ran 20-1 mix of 30 SAE non 
detergent oil which required a lot of spark plug cleaning (but a great 
mosquito and black fly deterent).  With the newer 2 cycle oils it runs well 
on 40 -1.  Not too shabby for 54 years old.
