Thread: Looking for...

  1. #1
    Looking for a Vintage Merc. About 35 horses. It needs to push my 58 Jetabout around Willipa Bay. What do you think?

    I would think a 40hp at least. There are a lot of OMC motors out in good running order. Pick your brand Evinrude, Johnson.
    Here is on thing to keep in mind Most places a motor can only be run 3 months out of the year and out of the 3 months maybe run a week Now figure out how many years are put on a motor In 40 to 50 years they are just broke in. The main thing is how well were they stored and taken care of.

    As far as the Vintage Mercs, you have Dr Frankinmerc up in Shelton who might have something ready to go.
    Then you have a Merc specialist down in Salem Oregon....Forgot his name but see him advertize motors for sale on Craig list from time to time.

    Next time I see his ad, I will make contact with him for more information to share.
