Thanks for the PM, but Wow that is old but in good nick for the age!

Someone once told me that an old outboard with really low hours is just as bad as an old outboard with really high hours! If you know what I mean

Check for parts availability and all that but my gut instinct says, don't buy it unless it is really cheap

It's ancient, seriously. They stopped making those shearpin Johnsons in the 70s.

|I'd expect seal trouble with it at least, and it's crankshaft rated so only about 18hp at the prop.

I know it's old, I'm asking if anyone knows how old.

From looking at the pictures, all the exposed rubber seems to be in very good condition and unperished, but of course, pictures only tell so much, so I'll be having a proper look at it before committing to buy it.

I dont expect everyone to like it, or agree that it's something they would have on their boat, but if it gets me out on the water, for what I consider a reasonable price, I don't see much harm in it. I'll only be using it in Belfast Lough where there is good VHF and mobile phone coverage, and I'll have an auxiliary.

I'm not sure how you can be certain on the power rating unles you're certain on the year, which you don't appear to be..... Have seen ones that look very similar and they are 1990 MOD motors.
