I am looking for a used OMC 70hp inline 3 cylinder. 1986 or newer. Must have good compression and power tilt/trim. Must be within driving distance of Long Island. Thanks, Rich

Have you tried your local dealers...give them the specs you're looking for and ask them to give you a call if they have something you might be interested in...with the boatshows right now and people trying to repower, you might be a good deal on just what you want...

Go look upstate in the freshwater areas. I never buy saltwater motors.

Its for my 1986 Montauk, I do not want a V4. I like the 70's because of the low gas consumption for a 2 stroke. Rich

rfiglia,

If you are willing to come to South NJ, I should be able to find you something. I have a 50 HP Johnson at my beach house, but I think that may be too small for your needs.

You should put a "wanted to buy" ad in Craig's list. I bet you will get a number of calls. Also, look on craig's list for junk boats with good motors selling for $1,000 or less. They are pretty common.

rfiglia,

A quick search of Craig's list New York City turned up the following motor for sale in Huntington (which is not far from you). I have no affiliation and the ad was place a couple days ago.

1988 JOHNSON 88 SPL. 20" SHAFT. NOT USED FOR APRX 3 YEARS. WINTERIZED WHEN PUT AWAY. NEEDS TO BE SERVICED.
AS IS $600
ALSO HAVE OTHER V4 PARTS AVAILABLE.
