Last year i needed a 60hp outboard.. I ordered from this guy a 2004 model in excellent condition..
Well yes there is all the whole it is another country but thought would give it a go..
Yes they are a genuine company yes the engine arrived just like the picture...
I ran it up and it fired seemed ok on the driveway. So far so good..
Fitted it to the boat and went for a spin.. well I say spin more like a splutter and drift.
So didn't go anywhere fast. took it to a mechanic and gave me the low down.
Total bill to fix woudl be £1200.. plus the initial price of £2100.. Thanks a bunch..
The decals are from the 4 stroke range, the yamaha dealer I took it to said it was the best respray he had ever done. After some digging on the engine he found the actual age of the aengine was 1995 not 2005!
The inside of the cylinders were scored and damaged. The thermostat housing was damaged and not repaired correctly.
All I can say is don't do it.. pay the extra £1000 and buy in this country!!
I think he buys old engines does them up and sells them on.. nothing wrong with that unless they don't work!!
