Thanks Ram. I just bought a Macgregor 222 with this motor on it. I'm going tomorrow to get new fuel lines and see if it will run. If not what would be a good inexpensive replacement?

Aloha Skipper62,
Good luck on your Evinrude. I don't think you can get a better engine for your boat so even if you had to spend a few bucks getting it running properly you might be money ahead. A 4 cycle will be too heavy for the stern in my opinion.
Kind regards,
JohnL

For an inexpensive replacement; get someone else to pay for it.

A five horsepower Honda four stroke weighs 60 pounds. A five horsepower two stroke Mercury weighs 45 pounds. I don't think that 15 pounds would make any noticeable difference.
