    I saw a Johnson Super Seahorse RDS-250 Outboard Engine for sale online and I was wondering if anyone has any info about this engine? I don't know much about year or anything. The serial number is 2380542. Any info about this motor would be great.

    That would be a 1963 or older engine. Most likely lat to mid fifties. They were good engines but the older ones before 59 required a pressurized fuel tank. The bigger hp ones drank a lot of fuel and required a 24:1 fuel mix.
