I have an opportunity to go and see this motor (it's for sale). The ad states that it runs.
It looks to me like a Johnson 200/210 (mid-30s, 3.3HP). Correct?
It seems to be complete, with the only blemishes being someone got 'red paint happy' with the flywheel and the rope sheave and the tiller handle has been 'enhanced' with what looks like an aluminum bar.
Anyone see any other flaws? Is there anything specific I should look out for with these motors? I've already got a Johnson 300 so I am somewhat familiar with the era.
It doesn't appear to have the piston water pump (like the 300), any idea what kind is used?
Thanks. And feel free to include any random thoughts you may have
