    Default Motor swap question 40 to 85

    I have an 18í pontoon that currently has a 1996 40hp mariner on it. I was recently given a 1977 85 hp Johnson. I know itís a much older motor. What are some pros and cons of swapping to the 85 or should I just stick with the newer 40 hp. Any advice is appreciated
