Hello all. Is the above motor an ok motor in general? I might have found one which looks to be in good shape and has a service history from someone I know for about $400 to replace my cantankerous old 40 hp.

Would be a great engine....if they made one in 1976. The 3cyl was a 65hp and the 2cyl was 55hp.

Thank you Bigshot. It is definitely a 60hp. It has a very low profile on the back of the boat and is a 2 cylinder. I geuss I'll have to verify the year.

Got a pic? what about serial #? I can verify it for you. Good thing is I think it may be early 80's.

Well, the motor hood as I say is of a low profile. The majority of the hood and lower unit is some peculiar silvery-gray Evinrude color and the motor hood has from what I re-
member alternating red,white and and ironicly blue thin stripes with the word
Evinrude in the center of all this mayhem in red I believe.

P.S. I don't have a picture as I can not afford a digital camera due to my Miserable
Mercury Maintainance bills.

Silver blue with a big dark red decal with thin stipes outlining it? Sounds like a 1981, get me a #.

Great Bigshot! I hope it is an 81. I'll get back to you with a serial number. Maybe some-
