Hi all, I came across a 1997 Yamaha 2-stroke 90 "Inshore" w/prop. Hours unknown, but motor very clean under the cowling and no dings on the prop and no beat-up skeg. Has T&T. Asking price is 3000.00 (Kauai) with binnacle only, no tach.
Are these the typical 2-stroke motors of those years (curious as to the "Inshore" designation on the cowling)? Motor is 20" shaft. We're thinking of using this on a 23' flat bottom aluminum skiff that had twin 45 johnson's (old 2 strokes, 1 threw a rod and the other doesn't run well).
Information on motor tag:
6H1 L 494677 W
Any advice/opinions on this motor appreciated,
PS----is the compression easy to check on a outboard and is that something that pretty much tells you the condition of the engine?
