    Well ive owned mercs, evinrudes, had a 88 vro 115 that was a GREAT little motor, but after goin back and fourth ,the merc stole my heart. It has the sound (stock form) that omc missing and rpms but the omc had great torque, but they ALL gonna have their issues sooner or later. If my merc went down and a omc was gonna get me back out next day then I'd use it , til I got my merc rebuilt or another merc of course . I do like to pick at omc guys (chevy,ford) but all in fun of course . Great thread here Will. Will are you out Hendersonville parts? Old hickory?

    Was buying my first Checkmate, early 70's MX-15 with a 115 Merc tower on the back, told the salesman I wanted to see it run, at the time, Princeton Marine had a small test tank in the back of their dealership, they would move boats around with an old fork truck, anyway , they dunked my little Checkmate into the tank, started it up, and floored the throttle, shoved the boat, trailer and fork truck up the ramp, been lovin Merc's ever since.

    While in Fla, there was a recycling yard in an industrial park that the local dealers dumped their dead motors at.

    Tough to deal with as Mexican run, only one spoke English and wasn’t always there.
    But when he was, he sold me complete V-6 OMC loopers for .50c per lb, or $225.

    Id take it home and rebuild it at a cost of $500., having a total of $750 in it or $1000 if I paint/sticker it and reseal gear case.
    Sold p.heads for $3500. and complete motors for $4500.

    Or I’d port it, screw on good heads and carbs and go Merc huntin.
    300 hp+, 7500 rpm for a grand ��
    I'd rather be competitive w/junk I built in my garage than win w/stuff I bought.


    I refuse to allow common sense to interfere w/my boat buying decisions.

    Motors dont come from scrap yards w/titles.

    Down there, no one cared. Shipped those p.heads all over the US, Bahamas and Caribbean.
    Delivered them to private planes at local airports, on their way to the islands.
    Had one guy w/a house in the islands negotiate to bring me there for installation/tuning. Unfortunately we coulnt come to terms.
