Re: What to look for (or look out for) in small outboard

I went back and they still had the motor. Superficially it looks good, hoses seem to be flexible not rotten etc. I love how light it is. Decided to buy it and got the price down to $275. Store policy is that have a week to try it and can return it if I'm not happy. Got it home and looked up the model number. It's a 1983 motor. We'll see if I can get it going this week. Thanks for all your help so far.

Test it quickly.

Policy could be " It was running fine when it left the store". If they don't have a test tank, they must not do much repair/maintenance work?

Best of luck.
