Description OEM Part Number
With the fluted stainless wrap-around cowl, these outboards define Mid-Century style. The Mark 55's were rated at 40 horsepower but routinely developed much more. They can run circles around a "JohhnyRude" with the same rating. This Mark 55E (for electric) is 12-volt electric start and incorporates a built-in alternator to charge the boat's battery. This motor is for boats with a 15" transom

This motor is complete with good compression. All castings are good with no cracks or breaks. A bronze prop in good condition is included and can be exchanged to suit your boat. At a minimum, the new owner should expect to replace the spark plugs and water pump impeller, rebuild the carburetors and fuel pump and change the gearcase oil For a Concours show motor however, the cosmetics would have to be addressed

We also can supply a new electrical harness, new throttle/shift cables and a good used remote control box at extra cost
