Wow I can't belive you can still buy them - a 5hp for 455 - new and unused - I am REALLY tempted.

I had heard of them vaguely - by some bizarre coincidence someone once gave me a carrying handle for one used by the commandos during the war!!!

Remember it will be measured at the head not the prop if its that old. You should be able to get a new 4HP for around 500 - and I know where I would put my money (on the one that you can get parts for and still has a warranty!).
