Are Force outboards reliable?
The Mercury lower units are great quality, but the older Chrysler Force motors had many issues. Never owned a Force or known someone who did but all I can say is that if it comes with a “parts motor” the previous owner has had problems with it and surely you will too. Yup.

Are old boat motors reliable?
Most of us have an outboard motor; and some of us have old outboards. The “good old” outboards—the ones that were built in the 1950s and later—are even better than those early, antique outboards. They are just as reliable, and a lot easier and cheaper to fix than state-of-the-art motors.
What is the oil ratio for a 2 stroke outboard?
For 2-Stroke outboards that require a 50:1 premix of oil/gas we’ve put together the following chart to simplify the calculations. Use ONLY 2-stroke outboard motor oil with an NMMA (National Marine Manufacturer’s Assoc.) certified rating of TCW3. Never use automobile motor oil in your 2-stroke outboard!
When did Chrysler stop making boats?
Chrysler even produced a very popular line of sailboats. But it all came to an end by the early 1980s when Chrysler sold everything as a condition of a government bailout necessitated by their struggling automotive operations. Its engine and boat designs have lived on, in a number of other manufacturers’ products.
