So I'm looking at a 97 Ranger 461vs that has what I'm assuming is a 97' Yamaha Pro VMAX 150 on it. I'm new to bigger motors, and don't know a ton about this one specifically in terms of reliability, etc. I'm fairly mechanically inclined, but would like to know general thoughts on the quality and reliability of these motors. Also any specific things other than compression testing I may want to look at, etc.........I'm going to run the boat tomorrow and will have a chance to really check things out at that time. The guy that's selling says it runs great, etc........but I'd like to know from others what I should be looking for at this motor.
Any help is appreciated!
