Been looking for something to do while the weather's cold (save the "wuss" comments, I freely admit I'm too much of a sissy to sit in subarctic temps to fish:wink Went to a conservation department auction yesterday and apparently the people around me had more money than they knew what to do with 'cause there was no way I was paying what they were for project motors. Got home last night and found a listing on Craigslist for the motor in the subject line. Called this morning and went down and picked it up. Looks good, turns free, and feels like it's got compression, but I'll rig it to a battery here before too long and get the compression and spark checked. Needs a tiller handle and a couple of lower unit parts, but that shouldn't be too hard to track down. Gave $50 for the motor and it should clean up nice. Ordered the OEM shop manual today, so hopefully by next weekend I can get it checked out and start cleaning it up and making it look and run like new. More pix to follow as I get to work on it!
