Live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. And when your time comes to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that they weep and pray for more time that they may live there life over in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a Hero going home.

I do not know much about ths motor other than what my local mercury dealer told me. the motor was born as as carburated 260 hp promax / in 1988. I was told by the previous owner it was rebuilt to repair a thrown rod resulting in 1 weld for that cylinder.

not to be a wise acre but your dealer is misinformed 1st the promax was not born till 1994, second there were NO carburated Promaxs they were EFI , third all Promaxs were 225 Horse power EDIT 225 was highest horse power for them they did make 150 and 200 pmaxs

Not trying to be asmart ass ,but Promaxs were 150,200and 225 hp

yes your correct sorry i just did not think about going down in horse power the 225 was the ones that lasted the longest on the market i bought my 225 new in 1995, 1998 was the last year for 150 maybe not i also bought a 200 a few years ago for a XB 2002 but there were no 260 pmaxs or 260 pmax carbed motors

Can anyone out there help me Identify exactly what this motor is ? My local mercury dealer called mercury and gave them the serial #ob290009 taken from the block, he said it came back as a 1988 2.4 L mod-vp model #19149112bh 260 promax. I have had many people tell me all promaxexes were efi motors. So I'm confused because this one is carburated and I don't want to miss lead anyone interested in the motor.
