COOL deal, Dallas!! You seem determined, so I'm sure the boat project will turn out just fine for you. Keep us posted on your progress! BTW: Also check the compression first off to see where you stand with the overall engine status.

Make sure you check compression first .Even if you have to have dealer check them for you for twenty bucks or less.If the comp. is bad anything you do before or after is just bad money you good use elswhere.
Dallas, listen to the fellows about the compression. You will be very sorry if you don't.
Congrats Dallas, good luck with it!!
what should the compresshon be i can borrow a gage from napa
ps. its a 75hp johnson
Mac its good to see you chime in hear my friend
Not sure of the exact, but the cylinders should be within 10-15% difference tops. Problems with an outboard that old is parts. If the compression does check out ok then you're looking at total rebuild on carbs, iffy on electrical components and wiring, and hope the gearcase and gears are good. If the hull floats and there isn't any damage to it or the trailer, the price would be ok for a project.
But sometimes you are money ahead if you find something that you can test run. The above mentioned parts if available can make a cheap initial investment a costly disaster which may never be right.
