    Wtb small motor

    Looking for a small tiller. 4-10hp. Budget is only a few hundred. Trying to buy a gift for christmas. Let me know what you have. I also have some car audio I can add for trade. I am in St. Pete.

    I have a 1980 Johnson 7.5 Sea Horse pull start that runs great. I guess it's a long shaft as it was on a boat with a 20" transom. Have a 2-1/2 gallon tank with it. Also, a pretty long fuel hose with an inline fuel filter. $300 buys it. I have a guy from Venice who wants to buy it but he's not coming up until Friday morning and, besides, I'd rather sell it to someone on the forum.
    I live in Carrollwood.

    Edit: The dude from Venice told me that if I had a chance to sell it before Friday he was okay with that. Just keeping things honest here.

    I appreciate that, sounds good too, except I need a short shaft.

    Ebay. China made but it only weighs 22lbs and does burn lots of oil 25:1 ratio. Smokes a little but its pull start with twist throttle tiller handle and has 4 adjustments for your wanted position on tilt or trim. Mine has never failed me purchased about a month ago and roughly used it 10 times. It is a little loud and smokes a bit when its warming up. Very easy to star usally 1-3 pulls all it needs. It says water cooled but it does not pee water out anywhere and with the vents in the cowling i believe its actually air cooled which makes it possible to run in nothing for water.

    It won't plane. It'll move it though.

    Do you have the brand? I am leaning towards the new propane outboard.
