    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!!!

    Rev limit is set at 6700 rpms. Operating range is 5k to 6k.

    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.
