Not recommending it but.....

Nothing to do with me, but someone thought this was a good idea on a 4.7!

Is this a genuine advert?

I totally agree on that (except for the ol Suuz 65.
Buying a new Merc/Mariner F60efi would give you a nice "light feeling" quick setup and has a lot better price than the YamF70.

If money were no object, I'd suggest a Yam F70 4-stroke, but they're 7295.
If you want to spend 2k-2.5k, then I'd suggest a 2003 onwards Merc/Mariner/Yam 50/60hp 4-stroke (Efi)
If you want to spend 1500, then look out for a late 1990s Yam 60/70 2-stroke, but these are rare.
If you want to spend around 1000, then an older Yam 60/70 or a Soozook DT65 from early-mid 1990s would be my choice.

The 70hp Yamaha that was supposedly sold on Ebay is back on again.
Any info on this engine?

No, but the anti-cavitation plate is damaged. There's another Yamaha gearbox on Ebay described as 'mint'... you decide!
