Im thinking of buying a 1997 Evinrude 200 for one of my Whalers, can anyone give me any pro's or con's about buying this, they are carburator motors. Thanks J

Great engine. Depends on price and condition and like nay used motor, one can never tell the longevity. I have the Johnson model and she runs like a clock, it is a 1994.

John, that is a workhorse engine. By today's standard, it's a simple design. Easy to work on and one of the most dependable engines made. As Bigshot said, if the hours are reasonable and it's been well maintained, buy it.
