Bought it at a garage sale. It had good compression and the prop turned when I pulled the cord. To test it I put a very small squirt of Fast Start into the air inlet and gave it a tug. It started right up and ran for about 1/2 of a second or less then ran down (out of gas). Still pulls well all good!
Does not appear to have been used in salt water - check the photos and see. Seems to be in great shape for a older motor. It is missing the little air filter that goes over the carb air inlet (pictured). SO I made no attempt to run it with regular fuel.
