Re: Sican Out board

Looks like one of the typical cheap Chinese outboards. They seem in general to be noisy, full of vibrations but will run for a while. Don't expect it to last long as they are made of somewhat unknown and unreliable materials add to that the fact that you will not likely to be able to get any replacement parts other than perhaps a spark plug. If you can get a carb rebuild kit for it now, I would get several as they won't likely be available for long. If you purchase it you are on your own after the first start. The only way I would buy one would be if I ordered it direct from China and got it super cheap. I would look at CL and see what old used outboards are selling for, and be sure to pay less than that.
