    Need Advice - Rebuild / Replace 1992 Mariner 150 w/ Blown Power Head...

    I have a 1992 2.0L Carb Mariner 150 which is blown.

    I need advice on repairing / replacing this motor.

    One cyl has no compression, 2 of them have about 50lbs, and the remaining
    are all weak.

    I'm a newbie on pwr head rebuilds... My mechanic suggests a merc reman pwr head for $6K (installed). I can't afford that, but if I end up keeping the boat, I don't want to waste my $$$ on a cheap fix that won't last. Any idea about how much it will cost to get a *reliable* repair. Is there any way I can get a deal on a Merc Factory rebuilt power head, and then do the labor myself?

    Advice, help, and suggestions on good suppliers and/or repair shops would be appreciated.

    I'm Located in Arlington, VA just outside of DC.
    It's OK to PM me if you want to recommend (or steer me clear of ) a particular vendor...

    If I can't find a reasonable fix for a price that I can afford, the wife will make me trash the boat .

    Thanks for your help and thoughts.
    -Phil
