if it's a Force then it should be DIRT cheap and run like a watch. If not look elsewhere-they are almost worthless.

The only real advantage to Force is no-one will ever make a concerted effort to steal them as you'd have to pay someone to take a stolen Force.

But it wouldn't be stolen then would it!

Force are rebranded Chrysler engines and about 30 years out of date. They are pure unadulterated rubbish. Save your money and keep looking.

Sea Bass 1, the Force motor you are looking at is NOT a Chrysler.
It's a MERCURY.

When Force first came into being they bought out Chrysler (or was it the other way round) either way Force outboards were re badged Chryslers BUT..
in 1992/3, Force switched to Mercurys.

What they do is use the previous generation of Mercury engines so they are not the same as the current ones you buy at your Mercury dealer but rather the ones you could have bought a few years previously.

This info came from Bill Higham Marine in Manchester who are Mariner dealers and are/were Chrysler specialists. As Mariner and Mercury are the same, I guess they should know.

Hope this helps.

Well as they say one lives and learns. I did not know about the Mercury thing thank's for the update.
Mind you if they are still selling Force O/B's they will have a hell of a job to overcome their previous bad name.
