    Depends what you want to use the boat for. These are thirsty, old technology engines. That said they are also pretty cool. Any OMC mechanic could get these running for you. Good luck.

    Salt water motors that old, getting them apart and all the broken bolts out will be fun. Then hope the decks and heads are not falling apart from corrosion.

    It will definitely be a major project getting all three of those back in good, reliable condition.

    If you have the funds and you use the boat much, new e-tecs would probably pay for themselves in no time, just in gas savings.

    I think the money you spend in updating to new outboards will definitely pay it forward in peace of mind and fuel savings alone.

    Look up Monty racing. Gordon can bring them to life and he is in Flordia. Those are good motors. I run one on my deck boat.
