Default Motors! What the heck do I have?

I just bought a boat hull and a BUNCH of extra parts. The big thing I have questions about are two engines that I got in the mix.

The first is a K&B outboard. It has the markings of a 3.5 on the side of the cylinder. Is it a 3.5 CC?

The next is a Rossi .90. Anybody know anything about these? Any input would be great.

Yes, that's 3.5cc or .21 cubic inches. K&B made several models through the years.
Sorry, I don't know much about the Rossi .90 except I hope that you like to spend money on fuel.

Is the rossi in running condition? Can you post some pics of what you have?

the k&b 3.5 is a reliable out board
and if possible can u post pic of rossi 90 as they are a very quick motor and bit of fuel guzzler but they are a cracking motor
great performance

Sorry guys, can't post anything because my old camera isn't compatible with windows vista.

As for the Rossi, It's never been fired. Does anybody know where I might be able to get some liturature and possible a manual for this?

I think I will shelf the K&B and use it at a later date.

Thanks for the info guys.

You can go to www.mecoa.com to see which K&B outboard that you have. If it's one of the first ones, it's not that good but more of a collectable.
