Johnson VRO 150 hp 2 stroke engine

I have a Johnson VRO 150hp 2 stroke engine for sale on behalf of my friend,

This engine does run and was recently removed from a SACS rib when the engine was replaced on that boat with a brand new 4 stroke.

Unsure how many hours the engine has done but it does run. It is an old engine but surely of use to someone.

I have all the controls and cabling for it

Please email offers if interested

Engine is located in Edinburgh and would have to be collected by buyer

Photos will be added at some point depending on interest


Ben

Hi, thanks for your question.

Here is a bit more information about the engine

The engine is an ex MOD engine year 1988. It was shipped to Dubai in 1988 and lay brand new and unused in a crate for 10 years until it was shipped back to the UK and fitted to a private/pleasure SACS rib in 1999. The engine was still new at this time. It about 500 hours (over estimate) on it. The engine runs well but does have a small weep of 2 stroke oil coming from it which may be a gasket. The engine has now been removed from the boat and replaced with a brand new Honda engine hence the sale.

It is in my garage ready to go.

I have attached a picture of the boat with the engine still on. This was taken in October 2012 on the last trip of last season.

Also I see you are from the Western Isles. We have a few trips to the West Coast this year, including this weekend and again 2 weeks later on if you are interested.



Thanks

Ben

500 cash on collection would secure the deal.
