    Mercury 2.5 260 Rebuild Thread

    Hey everyone,

    Since restoring and rigging my ski race boat I purchased a couple of years ago the ol' 2.5 260 was in need of a tidy up (plus the odd upgrade), so I thought I'd share a few pics from the build so far.

    Getting there slowly - can't wait to be back on the water ready for summer here in New Zealand!

    Cheers, Alex

    Looks great, i guess you know your getting old when you think of a motor of this age as one of the "new ones" , fun out
    most overnite successes usually take at least 10 years

    That’s what I’m talkin’ about! These kinds of threads are what Scream And Fly was meant for! Very nice work.

    My 260 looks dingy. Won`t clean up. I think I just might paint it like this guy did. Silver looks good.

    Thanks Greg.

    Have been following the forums for years and years before finally undertaking a build myself (with ALOT of help).

    Cheers, Alex
