I think I'm going to pick an older alumacraft side console for $700. But the 90hp evinrude/johnson on it has burned up pistons. If the block is still in good shape I'll hone it and rebuild it with new pistons. But if the block needs to be bore'd out, I would be looking at $700ish rebuilding it. Do you think it would be worth it or just buy another motor to put on it?
My goal is to trick out the boat and sell it, the rebuild could be a selling point but I think it could hurt it too.
All I know is 1981-98 is when they made the motor. Don't know what actual year it is, the guy is trying to find the titles so he can tell me an exact date. I'm going to buy it all from him next weekend.
So it's a 1981-98 v4 90hp Johnson/evinrude/omc. I few forums I read said they were pretty solid motors.
