Curses! I was about to offer you a running 1972 Johnson 20Hp longshaft for £100!
Joking aside, have a look on the stirling cruise thread - you'll see the state of my rib. By the time I ever get round to finishing it I'd have been just as cheap buying a new / decent used one....BUT half the fun for me is in the refurb.
Ditto my engine. Paid peants for it. Then spent probably £1200 totally rebuilding it (rebore - the works) and yes, I could have bought a runner for that, but a) I had fun rebuilding it and b) I know it's history now so no surprises.
So, if you are in the mood for a restoration it's probably £40 well spent.
(and I do actually have an engine looking for a good home!)
