I have now parted with my oldest outboards and 1 a seagull ran at 10 to 1 smoked like hell 30 weight oil,I dont know how some of those old birds would go with modern oils.  The guy that bought tis one will restore her and bring it back down my way in just over a year for the wooden boat festival,And as he left he promised me a chance to run it once restored.

Well it would stand to reason if a saw made in the mid 50's using modern mix oil at 32 or 40 to 1 would do fine that an old outbord would do likewise .
