This is a motor that a friend of mine got in his father's estate.. This motor and anoither one a 15 horse was wrapped in a moving blanket in a back shed and he does not fish so he sold them to me.. This motor is in like new condition and except for some paint scrapes on the hood it is super clean. One look is all you would need to verify the condition of this motor.. It runs and shifts just perfect both in reverse and forward. There is no wear on the prop edges either...I would like to trade for a handgun but would also consider a 243-6mm or a 308 rifle..
