    This is a late 60's-early 70's model, 65hp Mercury motor 4 cylinder. I ran the motor last year when I got it and it ran good, but reverse did not work. Eventually, the prop began spinning at high speeds, so I replaced it with a new one. Motor began bogging and dying at low speeds after that, but would fly down the river once I got the speed up on it. I ended up buying another boat and let this one sit this year. Last time I fired it up was in the spring to make sure it still ran (and it did). Asking $250 for the motor. Have a picture of the motor on my profile page "motor for sale". You can PM me if interested or have any questions. Thanks!

    Does this motor come with all the controls? I would be replacing a 50 hp Johnson Hydro-electric drive with it.

    Controls not included, just the motor itself. I'm using the controls on my other boat right now or else I'd let them go with it. Heck, I'll take $150 if someone will come get this thing. I took the motor off and put the boat in my garage as a project. The motor is hanging from my engine lift and in the way.

    Let me check around and see what controls would cost. And figure what it would cost for me to make a trip after it and so forth. If you still have it then I will see what we can do. May be a bit before I can do anything depending on what it will cost me.

    I might be better off taking what I have to someone that could fix it for me.

    Sure don't. Here in Ky, we just get boat titles. I've never had or seen a title on a motor since I've lived in this state.
