This motor is in good condition, and includes controls. You will need to bring a compression tester to confirm it is good, before you purchase. It is not on a boat and I don’t know how to run it for you. You are welcome to do whatever checks you need to, prior to purchase.
I have other boats, motors and trailers available too...see all of my ads here: http://charlotte.craigslist.org/search/sss?userid=13325410
