Also, if you decide on a Winchester M70, they did make some Pre-64 type guns after '64 and before the FN buyout/move from New Haven. I have a Supergrade 338 Win Mag that is in that category, built in...

You will likely be fine. My Dad gave me a boat with a 2005 F150 on it in 2015 and the engine only had 59 hours. So it was a 10 year old motor that had only seen 6 hours a year.

Dad had been good...

I have a galvanized McClain built in 1974 still in service. Bought it a new axle a couple years ago.

If your wife found the hub's dust cover I'm presuming it was near where the wheel/tire came off. Likely just got knocked off when the wheel slid (scraped) off the end of the hub.

Assuming the hub is still turning fine, sounds like maybe didn't torque your lug nuts correctly? Nuts backed off a bit, tire wobbled and worked a bit (hence the opened up holes in the wheel) and...

One other thought OP, you asked about the parts support and yes some parts just aren't available anymore (say a lower unit) so you find yourself poking around on ebay looking for parts.

Back in the 70-80s timeframe, at your price point, you'll still see a lot of Evinrude and Johnson V-block 135's and 150s in service. Or maybe it was a 140 my memory is faded. At any rate they were...

As a percentage it is now running less than 1%.

When I first got it, getting the boat lined out cost maybe 2 or 3% of that year's income.
