What size is this engine?

Based on the two attached photos, can anyone tell me roughly how many horses this engine is?

Could be a twin; I know nothing more than what I can see in the photos.

I was thinking more like 40.....or am I being a bit optimistic

Think it is a 40 - looks the same this rather overpriced one here: http://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/view/F98460/

Can anyone confirm my theory?

Its a twin, my bet is a 40HP, it must be a 30/40/50 because the 25hp and smaller aren't that shape. My bet is its a 30/40HP, get the serial number and do a google, there is a way of working out its year from that and obviously the power output.
All in another language but you can work it out from this, HK is horsepower...

Its a 40 or more likely a 50 or 55 and the cowl is on the wrong way round....

70's or early 80's- later ones would have the VRO style graphics.

I guess the guy selling it is a bit slow?

Ģ150 quid tops if you're thinking of buying it looking at the state of it under the cowl. Awful engines.

2-cyl. Depense on year on the engine. But 50,55,60 and later 40 if i remember right. I had first 3-cyl evinrude 60 (-84?) with 737cc and much higher. And this is older i think. My guess is 55 hk, and in sweden this engine has bad memorys from many people. Itīs not the best 55 evinrude built.

Well you've stimulated a decent debate on something you're not really interested in
I think Nos got it right - the hood's on back to front.
Don't go buying it now, will you?
