    i know they used 2 take it up north in the summer don't know what yr but rember seeing old pics with them an a old wooden boat!!!!!
  2. I had a 9.9 that i got real cheap but it was in pieces-every nut and bolt removed. I thought over time I could put it together-NADA. I took it over to ADAMS Marine just north of youngstown. Gaylord was the most honest dependable mechanic I have ever met. I had it all put together and runs great. He replaced anything he thought looked worn too bad or might cause a problem, but asked me first. Iwould take to him although I don't have any idea where richmond is.

  3. I think you should be able to find something on the powerhead.

    That would be a 1945-1946 -5.4 hp. Zephyr. 4 cylinders and they are real smooth running motors. I have several. The aluminum polishs up real nice on those. I have a twist throttle model that has cruise control and remote shift. A cool option. Those were very reliable motas'. :) Raider
