Thank You for your purchase of the Evinrude engine. You will be very happy with this motor. I will need to know what shaft length you will need so I can set it up for your application. Also I will need your address and phone
number so I can make up your invoiceand figure out the best way to ship the engine to you. I will be also send you a PAYPAL payment request so you can pay with any major credit card.
Everything is fine however I was out for a few days in the hospital. Problem with a valve in my heart and they put me in and monitored me for a few days. I will get back on this Monday. Sucks getting old. How was your vacation? Talk to you Monday.
