I got lucky and fast and grabbed the 9.9 hp Yamaha 25" high thrust kicker that showed up on Craig's list this morning. It is in really great shape and shows very little use. Model No. is T9.9EXHS which apparently makes it a 1994 model. It should hang just right on the transom of my Wooldridge Xtra Plus.

Is there anything special or peculiar about this older 4 stroke motor that I should be aware of or do before I run it? It has apparently been in storage for several years so I'll change the oil in the top and bottom and do all the normal and obvious stuff before I try to use it.
