I have a lead for a motor for my boat. It's a late 90's 25hp Johnson (remote). Supposed to have good compression. Before considering, I have a couple questions for the group.

1) Any concerns buying a Johnson of this vintage? Seeing that Johnson's are no longer made, are there any concerns with getting this motor serviced by mechanics? (I don't know a lot about engine work, so first times I'd probably take to mechanic before my venturing in to fix something).

2) Anyone with any other comments about this particular make/model, in terms of either reliability or things to look out for?

3) Motor can be test-started (in a well) -- other than good pee stream, anything else that I can/should look at before purchasing?

Thanks in advance ....
