These are great little motors. I just resurrected one from a 1989 boat that had not been run in at least 12 years. After doing the normal things to a motor that has been sitting this long, it started right up. We ran it for a short while to bring it up to operating temperature. No leaks or problems. 30 minutes later, it was in the back of a friend's pick-up truck, headed to his shop. It should be moving a nice little 28 A coupe down the road very soon.
