From memory the 55s used to snap conrods on a regular basis. Foxhangers Marine (now defunct) used to have a pile of dead 55's outside that he gave away to people.

I'm fairly certain it's not a 40-the twins are all hard to distinguish from 40-60hp but 40s of this shape are actually quite rare whereas the 50/55 were a common sight. It's the engine the 55hp yamaha twin was based on but not as good

Def not a 30-this is a 30...

Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?
