1958 30hpJohnson motor

This motor came on my 1958 kit boat. It turns over and sparks. Any idea on how much it's worth? Where would I find out about this? My son wants to sell it and get something else. He's worried about reliability since Ill be taking the boat out by myself. I am not very mechanical. Sandy http://s1.post...

Thanks for the responses. I should get some pics this weekend and I'll post them as soon as I can.
And I was going by the info in the essential guide, so we'll see.

Now what?

Just bought a '58 kit boat that looks like a hornet. Still has the '58 Johnson 30hp motor on it which much to our surprise does turn over and spark. Boat has been garaged most of it's life. Don't like the paint job on it. I'm assuming I need to sand all the paint off and start over, correct? Also do...
