    Default 1983 Gamefisher (Sears) 7.5 Value?????

    I confirmed the year thru pics of the plate. Above motor listed on EBAY. Supposed to run good. How high do you think I should go? No shipping expense. Motor is located about 2 hours from me so I could pick it up.

    Judging by the price of new motors nowdays,if this motor was in good visual and operating condition I would pay $200-$250.Just my 2 cents.Availability of parts when needed may be an issue.

    I thought of the parts problem also. Limited availability.I did figure in the ballpark of $200.Thanks again

    I had a 7.5 Seaking, which I think is the same motor, and I sold it for $75. The great people on this board helped me fix it. I would not pay more than $100.00 for it.

    That also looks like a Clinton Engine, which parts are almost impossible to find parts for.

    DO NOT BUY THAT MOTOR!!!A friend of mine has one (assuming it is one of those air cooled ones) and They are not made very well, and don’t hold up in salt water. It was a lawn mower with a prop, and never operated anywhere near the same performance as my 19716hp Johnson.I personally think you would be better off with a 1958 6hp Johnson than that motor!!!And most times you can find them Cheep!

    Also all engine parts I ever needed for it came directly off the shelf of a mower shop!
