I am looking at buying a 1990 Johnson 150 hp outboard. Running condition unknown, no prop and no tilt and trim unit. The guy wants $700.00 for the motor, would you buy or not? The motor will turn over so I know it's not froze up and the lower unit seems to go in all gears okay from what I can tell. The motor is laying on a storage unit floor with no way of starting, believe me I have tried. The motor looks like it is in great cosmetic condition, under the hood looks brandnew. Is there something I should look for? Is this even a good outboard?
Would a 1990 200 hp Johnson tilt & trim unit fit on this motor? Are those interchangable?
Thanks for any help
