What Rib is This??

Can anyone advise me on what Rib this is please: rib . 5.4 scorpion rib | eBay

Is it really a scorpion.....? Old prototype one maybe??

Also welcome any advice on the 2 stroke Johnson 70hp?

Does the VRO work well?.or should it be disconnected and oil mixed manually as I've read some have done?

Thanks for any help or advice received.

Yer that's a Tornado. I sent him a message telling him when he first put I up but didn't pay any attention to it.

Thanks Tim and others, confirms my thoughts too. Nothing wrong with a Tornado though I guess at this price as long as its sound.

Any thoughts on engine and auto oil mixing VRO.
