is there any particular thing I need to look at weakness wise.it starts fine, runs forward and reverse etc but the carb is flooding as the gent who is elderly states its been sat for a long while and has placed the motor in a marine shop for a carb clean and tune.
think I am good to go with this but had been in two minds to go with a newer model engine.
will the resale value stand at this price if I decide to sell in a season or two.
thanks in advance for all your help
