    Question 1985 90hp Johnson motor

    Thanks for any ideas... situation...lower unit was water logged, and drained without oiling.. May have a bit of rust.
    Now,,with lower unit off or on, the motor will only turn several rotations with the fly wheel and then lock up. will not turn further.
    Question for you pro's... What situations would cause this to facilitate repairs... I am thinking of buying the motor.

    Sounds like it is worth scrap value.----12 cents a pound.

    In agreement with "racerone".... Seals shot in lower unit, gears etc no doubt rusted etc... underwater engine a strong possibility... absolute junk... run very fast, away in any direction, do not walk... to a place far far away!
