    The 032 is around 30 hp. I ran one doing some testing on my boat while my motor was being put together. With the prop and pitch I was using it figured to be about 30. I still have it and would like to put a small boat together for the grandson.

    Google says 18-20hp???? If its 30 then that would work on my 1060. I found one for 400$. Is that a good deal?

    If it's a new one its an ok deal you can get a 084 for that.

    I know where some are at a pretty reasonable price. The problem is they are in various stages of completeness. Some missing the carb or intake but all of them complete as far as heads etc. if a fellow wanted to take a chance he could most likely have a running engine pretty cheap.

    I mi was thinking about grabbing one or two at a time and getting the tested then sell for parts or price Adjusted as to what needs fixed. Saturn Surplus has all of those motors.

    I come down to Toccoa a couple times a year so if you're not in a hurry I could bring something down.

    Saturn wants $1800 plus shipping and ins. to rich for my blood. I could get a new vw engine for close to that price and would not have to do much mod. looking to spend 4 or $500 before mods.

    I am new here and to airboats I just got my hands on 6 of the 4ao32 engines and 2 of the 2ao42 engines and they are all complete. Now I just have to figure out which one to use for my build!
