What is correct oil mixture for 40 hp evinrude?

The correct mixture is 50:1...or 1 pint to 6 gallons...if possible use the OMC Johnson/Evinrude oil, Do not add more oil than that, you will loose power.

Also I recommend adding SeaFoam to each tank. It decarbonizes the engine as well as preserves the fuel. 1/3 can to 6 gal with 1 pint of oil.

What is the History of Chrysler Outboard motors?

Chrysler Corp purchased West Bend's outboard manufacturing in January,1965. Chrysler sold the marine division not because they desired to, but because it was demanded as part of the government's loan guarantees. Chrysler stern drives were sold to Bayliner Boats in 1983 and the outboard division was sold to the Force Outboards division of U.S. Marine - an affiliate of Bayliner - in 1984.

The Chrysler Marine and Chrysler Defense divisions of the Chrysler Corporation were the two most profitable parts of that company, and the government made them divest both businesses. If it was me, I would have made Chrysler sell the division making the cruddy cars to Volkswagen or someone else that made cars people liked, and just turned Chrysler into a defense contractor.

What is the fuel for 1957 35hp evinrude outboard motor?

24:1 fuel / oil mix. OMC didn't go to 50:1 until around 1962/63. That outboard was equipped with the 2 line pressure tank system. I would update with a fuel pump that they put on some 1958 and all 1959 models so you can run it off any fuel tank if it hasn't already been done.
