I just wanted to know what is the rev limit for this motor?
6,000 plus or minus a couple hundred! These are a tough old motor! Just make sure that you rejet #2 a little richer.
There is a fine line between \"FISHING\" and just standing in the boat going through the motions!!!
Go up 2 sizes on #2 carb. and get the new brass plugs for the bowls, they will have a tit on the end of em'.
Rev limit is set at 6700 rpms. Operating range is 5k to 6k.

Yep and I sure don't want to bump mine .
My manual says 6700. Its for a 97 though.
I treid to bump mine.... ONCE.... The internals become externals around the 6500 mark......
I hit mine when I broke the lower unit. It just kinda shook a little, and the boat quit going.
I was MAD too. I thought I had blown up the motor.
