Can you get parts? Are they reliable?

Hello,

I’ve been looking at a lot of older outboards and seen good deals on a number of different brands but some of them kinda scare me- Chrysler for example. Can you get parts? Are they reliable?

Our old Evinrude was fairly reliable (50hp jubilee model) when I was a kid but it was slow and a gas guzzler. I always thought the tall inline 6 Merc engines on other boats looked so cool but my dad was quick to warn that they’re unreliable and noisy. I’ve since become a BMW mechanic and I’ll take a BMW inline six over almost any other engine- maybe the merc inline sixes share that lovely 6 cylinder smoothness?

Please help.

I didn’t find the right solution from the internet.
