Can anyone tell me what a 6 hp Easthope is worth. It is a later one with the starter generator, 12volt coil, and rotary water pump. It appears to be in excellent condition ( haven't tried to start it yet). It appears to be complete and in excellent condition. It would be great for a restoration project or a show piece. It's serial number indicates it was built in 1982. Thanks Rob

I'm struggling uploading pics. Engine is in PA. I started it today it runs well. I used the starter/generator and gravity feed fuel can. The engine has a 12 volt fuel pump,12 volt coil, Wilson starter generator, and jabsco brass water pump. The transmission works perfectly. It's a beautiful piece of craftsmanship. Mr. Holmes from this site helped me trace the history of the engine. It was one of only a couple 4-6 Easthopes built in the 81-83 era. And as I understand it one of the last ever produced. It was one of five engines that were sold to Rhode Island marine Snug Harbor RI. This engine powered a 20 ft. fantail launch that was built in RI in 1982 and was sold to a Gentleman in eastern PA. I bought the engine near his home town. I have to wonder what happened to the boat. Judging from the condition, it was well cared for and led a pampered life. As I understand it these sold for about $4500.00 (Canadian) in 1982. As I watched it running today I was amazed at the craftsmanship and simplicity of something built in the 1980's. The castings and design doesn't look much different than those from the 1920's. The compression release assembly is all brass. I Wasn't sure how to check the oil. I took the side cover off and still painted and pristine inside. I read that it weighs about 250lbs. This engine really should be in someone's boat or a collection where it can be displayed and enjoyed by others. I'm leaning towards placing it on ebay but still unsure if I want to offer shipping as an option.
