Used 1998 Mercury Force 40 ELPT 40 HP 2-Stroke Outboard Motor
Used 1998 Mercury Force 40 ELPT 40 HP Two Stroke 20 Inch Shaft Length Outboard Motor For Sale
This nice, clean motor starts right up and runs great. This low hour motor is extremely clean and in excellent shape overall. All of the original paint and decals are in very good condition and shine nicely. There are a few stains on the lower metal and couple scratches in the hood, but very minimal.
Overall this is a very nice clean motor that has been well cared for. As you can see under the hood is super clean. The lower skeg and prop are original and nearly perfect with hardly a scratch. This motor runs very well, starts right up, idles nice low and smooth, throttles up with no hesitation, has great power and pumps cooling water well. The motor shifts into forward-neutral-revers smoothly as well. The compression checked out perfect at 144-145psi on both cylinders, so you know it does not have a lot of run time on it.
This is a Wisconsin motor so has never been used in salt water and only seen short summers. The motor is a long shaft (made for a boat with a 20" transom) remote operated, 2-stroke, 2-cylinder with electric start and power tilt. The power tilt works very well and does not droop.
