Good source for used pre fitch Rud or Johnson
 
My son is looking at a 1996 Four Winns 203 Coast Runner. It's his first boat and he's on limited budget. This boat has a 225 Rud that is not running. Owner is not sure of the problem and I think I just want to replace it with a 200 HP because that is the max hp rating for the boat. Can anyone recommend a good source for used Rudes or Johnson's??

Don't worry about the extra 25 hp. They are the same block, with slightly different jets in the carb.

Why not just get the motor checked out? If it has good compression across all cylinders, it's probably a good motor that just needs a power-pack or something. Worth checking out before you ditch the motor.

Thanks, There is also a boat in Jersey with a 175. Is that the same block? Is there a good forum to get on and check out the old Evinrudes?
