6hp @ 4000 RPM Serial
This motor was offered to
satisfy requests for a 6hp motor for waters that had a
6hp limit. It was simply a relabeled 7.5hp Merc with a
limit placed on how far the speed control could be
advanced. The ID plate has an unusual orange-red
background. It was also equipped with a 3 blade prop.
They did not sell well. I purchased this motor in
2004 from a Maryland collector. I supplied a prop like
original and lower cowls that were missing. I got it
running well. The fuel tank has a brush paint job of
the wrong shade of green.
