Notes from Gene

This is a running motor but I have  never had it on a boat, tank run only.  Motor has new water pump impeller. New lower unit seals  and new crank seals. New piston rings, cylinders had a light hone or scuffing. Carb was cleaned. Fuel pump has a new diaphram. Mag was a swap out, probably needs points and condensers but does have  new spark plugs, wires and good spark. Will need new fuel lines, still original. Basically was a saw horse queen for last five years or so. I would recommend a good going over before putting into service

Im sure Gene will field any questions you may have about the motor we havent covered here in the post

In 47 years I’ve honestly never won anything in what seems like 100 raffles I’ve entered but that didn’t keep me from buying 2 tickets. The money goes to support a great thing we all love so it’s a win either way.
