They (Force - CHRYSLER) were never much of a success...not sure what the parts status is on them which would be an important issue.

Force outboards were somewhat popular with the local speedboat crowd. Is it a speedboat you're talking about ?

Personally regardless of the Brand, considering it is an 18 year old motor and spent its life pushing a speedboat, i would say its ready for retirement.

I totally agree with Guido99. I had a Fletcher with a Johnson 90 and don't remember a day without testing the engine limit! So after 18years, I think it's done enough!

hi mate,
 force was a project that never succeded , parts are rare to find , to find a part on internet it will take about 5 hrs from one stie to antoher cos my frient has a 115  and by the way every now and then the motor loves to go an sickleave..

in my opinion forget about it mate........

pay a bit more and buy a new boat Wink I think its worth it nowadays.
Check out Tar-ratal marine(fast fisher) , bucanner and kaptan boats.
Locally built and they are very nice
