45 size Mongoose from the late 80's early 90's. Engine is likely a 45. If you take the prop off
and look what size it is on the hub that will be a good tell. To prep the engine for cleaning a oil
soaking for a few days inside a container. Bag it up if you don't want to clean it yet least no more
rust will occur. I have seen the Mongoose run it was fast for it's day and popular the "it" rigger to
build.

You have amassed quite a collection the labor time to set them up and parts surly has seen some
investment. All of them should be good runners and first tests should be good as the previous
owner has surly ran them finding good props during the testing. Just a matter of enjoying them.
The tunnel should do 60+ on a calm day. Really it's down to cleaning them up polishing what
you want to as far as aluminum parts and testing them as you have time.

I'm curious to know what kind of Miller that is. Any chance of seeing the bottom or with the engine cover off?
