Hi shimna,

Welcome to the forum. I searched for information on the Wind Russian Outboards and came up with nothing. Are you in Russia or Alaska? Can you tell us more about this "Wind" engine. The only wind engine that I know about comes after eating a lot of beans.

Frank

hi
I have seen one since the posting and I've kept an option on buying. Here's the deal....these engines sell at $600 new ...compared to $2,800 for an equivalent size Yamaha or Mariner . Thet certainly look a little cruder but come with a complete set of spare parts.I'd like to know if anyone has tried them just....but obviously they haven't reached the USA yet ?

Yes I own one
as does my brother in law
bought it for 200 euro
they were advertised recently in Ireland for 500 euo
mine was brand new in 2006 or so
manufactured in Russia 1994
I received ''in factory grease''
along with bags of dessicant with
cyrillic characters
tool kit
cargo prop
spare tool kit
certs
and owners manual
Interesting piece of equipment.

I changed the gear oil
and ran it in a bit last year
had it out last night
got v hot dont think it was pumping water
the rubber impeller
(you get a spare)
may be gunked up
need more time to inspect
The rubber hoses etc are all poor quality
the BIL replaced his with proper fuel line
and new hose clips
They certainly lack finesse out of the box
all the rbber and plastics are poor quality
as you would expect
The owners manual practically
tells you how to make a new one
the end user is expected to be handy
