do not do it, these are throw away motors. I own them I have been there done that. 30K later i still have so so motors that are not reliable. noone can rebuild these. I tried, I paid Expert diesel reman of Roseville Michigan 16K to rebuild them only to get 1.4 miles before it ate a piston. He even screwed up 4 motors for johnson and towers.
Go to and look into thse motors. there are happy owners, but to buy a 20+ year old problematic motor is foolish at best, unless you want to buy my boat.
Seriously, PM me, I will give you all the info you need.
I can't agree more. It is not worth the chance on known problem engines.
