I am considering buying a 1990 Johnson 8 hp 2 stroke outboard the seller describes as "runs a little rough" and fouls the plus easily. Price is ok but I am a little concerned about potential repairs. My gut tells me a carb rebuild may be in order or possibly a choke issue. Doubt if a motor this small has oil injection so no need to worry about the oil injection system. Either way it would require a trip to the shop.
Can you still find parts easily for a 22 year old outboard? If I buy the motor, does anyone have a recommendation where to take it do to get repaired?
