The engine is a Yamaha 40hp...Thanks in advance..
Forgot to mention i live in Mountainash, 18 miles from Cardiff.
The steering cable is a job you should ber able to do quite easily yourself. I changed mine last year on my SR 5.4. Take the old one off first to get the proper length and type.

Looks great Matt Did you manage to get a decent prop for it and is there much difference noticeable between the 85 and the 90hp?
