Both headquartered and built there (Florida).
  If it runs perfectly, starts easy, etc, probably around $700-$1000. If something is broke and/it is missing parts or incomplete, $200-$400 as a parts motor.
In order to determine the year model for a Evinrude, or Johnson outboard, the engine model number is used.
It depends on the model. Most of the early models are displayed on a metal plate, rivited around the tilt tube, on the front of the engine, just under the manual choke lever. Late model outboards are stamped into a plate, or printed on a label, affixed to the swivel bracket, located between the...
The bulkheads are the walls within the ship that separate the different rooms or compartments. Bulkheads are designed to block fire and water from going to other compartments. The outer skin of the ship or boat is called the hull.    Bulkheads in a ship serve several purposes:   increase the...

A 35 hp Mercury outboard, serial number OC144498, would be a 1990 tear model.
  If not using the VRO system, mix fuel at 50:1, one pint of 2 cycle oil to six gallons of fuel.
If operating the outboard, without the oil injection system, use a 50:1 ratio. This is roughly one pint of 2 cycle oil, to six gallons of fuel.

Generally speaking, without the exact factory spec., you should  have over 60lbs., but you may find your motor will run with less.  Even if the number comes out low, spray some WD40 into both  cylinders throught spark plug holes. turn engine over couple dozen  times. Spray a little more WD40...
  Mine has a metal label on it that says: "1/3 pint of SAE 30 oil to 1 gallon of gas." I don't honestly know the actual ratio, but that's what mine says.

Look at the directions on the bottle. Make sure you use two-stroke premix oil and not motor oil. Try stuff from a dirt bike website or shop. The stuff at Walmart is for weed-eaters and such and is not recommended for dirt bike use.There will be a few options of ratios to choose from depending on how...

Which propeller to choose?3 blade props are the most common, come in the widest variety of styles and sizes and will typically cost less than a comparable 4 blade prop. Switching from a 3 blade propeller to a 4 blade propeller may make sense for you if you are trying to improve your hole shot or low...

That depends on what type of usage you have in mind: For example, if you just want something to get you around the marina, 1.5 - 3.0 hp would be fine. If you want power on the open ocean when the winds are gone, you'll want something that is large enough to make headway without rattling the spine to...
It's right between the alternator fluid reservoir and the port side fallopian tubing. =)))
This is a fairly vague question to answer, but generally all that is needed for an outboard carburetor is a good cleaning, and to install a new gasket kit. Hope this helps.
This depends on the size of the boat. The smaller type such as 12 foot row boats will usually have 7 hp outboard motors. Some of the larger boats up in the 20 to 30 feet have been known to run up to 4 outboard motors around 300 hp plus each. Above these boats in lengths you will find most of them...

CA has many zip codes not just 2 or 3. It depends on the city/area for the zip. The phonebook has zip codes listed or try online.

It could have a blown head gasket or a hole in the piston if it cranks and dies. Please clarify you question. Does it run for a little and slowly dies out? That could be a bad fuel connection allowing air into the system.
there should either be a dipstick with a level indicator or you would fill to the level of the fill plug.
I would run anywhere between 20-1 to 50-1 depending on oil and how much smoke you want, 50-1 for good expensive oil will make the engine smoke less and run cleaner but 20-1 with cheep oil is acceptable for lubrication
The best way is to sell yours and get a bigger engine, any engine work to improve power will be costly and not net significant power gains.Get a tune up with new rings and spark-plugs but with a typical 2-stroke outboard you wont gain much without a large cost to you.

Type III Type III MSDs provide no treatment and are either holding tanks or portable toilets. Collected waste should be taken ashore and disposed of in a pump-out station or onshore toilet.
If the first digit in this serial number is possibly "A", instead of 4, this would be a 1987 year model 8hp. I do not recall the 8hp model Mercury outboard in production before the A model, in 1986.
In order to find the year model for a Mercury outboard, the horsepower, in addition to the serial number, is needed.
Yes. Weight is not as important as height and measurements but it does play a role in the modeling industry--mainly for fashion and runway. Most female models that are 5'8" or taller are required to be within the 100-125 pound range. Male models weight requirements vary.
  Usually pitch is set according to horsepower AND boat size. You could try a taller prop, say a 10 pitch, but you are going to lose RPMs because to engine is cutting through more water. It's a give and take situation. If you can get the boat to a good prop shop near the water, most will let you...
In order to determine the age of a Mercury outboard, in addition to the the serial number, the horsepower is needed.
Hi, the fuel mixture for a YZ85 is 40:1 and I recommend using good oil. I run Amsoil Interceptor synthetic, the bike runs great on it because it burns very clean and it keeps the inside of the motor clean
I have tried a couple different mixtures in my 98 ktm 250 sx and i think that 93 octane with an octane booster and high performance 2 stroke oil at 50:1 is awesome it makes it very touchy at low end with no hesitation what so ever and still has plenty of power at top end i would never run any other...

The 1988 model, 28hp Johnson outboard, requires a 50:1 fuel to oil ratio. This is roughly, one pint of 2 cycle oil, to six gallons of fuel. If you have the same motor I have which is a 1988 Johnson 28 hp 2 stroke then the mixture is 100:1. The answer provided above is wrong. This is 8 ounces of 2...
It really depends on what device you are connecting power to. It is not much of a concern if running the heavier 8ga. wire, into the lighter 10ga. wire, when dealing with a 12 volt system. There are variables that come into play when selecting wire size, such as amperage draw, and length of run. An...
The dry weight of the 1991 model, Johnson 150hp outboard is 384 lbs.
