I got it from a buddy at work. It has been sitting for years and its missing the prop. It has compression and everything. Its just missing the prop. Is it a good motor? Is it reliable? It is a 2 stroke. And what's a good parts website for this motor? Where can I find the prop? Any help will be appreciated.

This ought to get you started, I would recommend removing the old plugs, and squirting some 2-stroke oil in the cylinder, let it sit overnight, next spin the fly wheel and squirt a little more in, and then let it soak overnight again and then after that session install new plug. I would without a doubt change the impeller and impeller housing, and then IN MY OPINION (My OPINION!) I would gut the thermostats if you plan on running shallow, If not then just get new t-stats. GOOD LUCK

Here's Your Manual... Highly suggest ordering it.
