I just bought a 1976 johnson 15hp 2-stroke tiller short shaft for cheap. I just bought it for my camo highsider and plan to camo paint the motor. I never own this kind of motor but a good things about it. So anyway..... Curious to ask....how reliable is the motor? Compression, lower unit check, and everything is working excellent. I'm curious why the motor pee out from the exaust?? Instead out of the tube like the new ones? Is any website information about this motor? Where I can find parts for it? With pictures? Any of you ever owned this kinds of motor? I took it out on the lake with my bare hull 15.4 highsider and it's haulass. Plan to put a jackplate and tabs soon. Thanks!
