I received this motor a few yrs ago. I am not certain if it even starts but its appearance is very good. My question is how do I determine approx value? Ebay has several ranging from $150 up to $500. And if I was to sell should I include the matched fuel tank or sell it separately? Any advice would be appreciated.

I think the range you quote is very reasonable of what you ought to hope to get for it. I wouldn't expect much more than the lower end of that range unless it were running well currently. With demonstrated good compression, recent fuel lines, carb work, ignition tune up, gear lube change, and impeller change, I'd be inclined to hold out for the higher part of the range or just keep and enjoy it. Note that this vintage 25hp is a "hopped up" 18 hp. The heart of the engine is not as robustly built as the later models. It is however, wonderfully light and they can run very well and reliably.

I appreciate your advice. It does not take up much room in the garage and I can always imagine that I will have time to fix it up someday. I will make a point to keep it cosmetically sharp. Thanks again

You're welcome Eyedock. I think you've got the best plan. I don't think I'd ever again sell a presumably mechanically sound, vintage 25 hp. Always great to have one around and you're sure to get far more fun and memories out of it than dollars. If you're mechanically inclined at all, you'll enjoy getting it going again. They are very easy to work on. Get a shop manual and replace the items listed previously and you'll likely be good to go. I used to have a 60's 25 hp. Never should have sold it!
