    1997 260

    Sold!! Deposit received

    97 model 260.
    This was originally a 20” offshore and I changed it out with a factory 15” mid
    Motor is fresh. It hasn’t even been started up since rebuilt. I will start it on the stand and double check everything before buyer takes delivery.
    Powerhead is original 97 model with the big bearing crank. No welds anywhere. Mag machine service just put a new nic sleeve in number 4 and honed the other 5.
    I also had him do his lake cut on the exhaust chest and notch the rod slots while he had it.
    I rebuilt it with brand new mercury rod and wrist pin bearings bearings. Pistons are factory mercury that have been top pinned, lightened, and balanced by John Marles. John also lightened and balanced the rods.
    Heads are 26cc with 1.2mm gaskets
    Also has 1” spacer and Running the A48 chip
    Mid is a factory 15” offshore from a 98 model 225 super mag (has 260 adapter plate and tuner)
    I sent the injectors to brucato where he cleaned and flowed them while I had the motor down.
    Lower unit does have a cut down 200 driveshaft and it has a small crack on the upper corner at the anode where they usually crack. (See pic).
    Motor is in great shape but I sold my 2002 and this one is just hanging on a stand.
    $10,000 complete with trim and fuel pump.
    Will sell power head separate for $6000 Prices are Firm!
    I posted plenty of pics but if you have any questions just let me know. Motor ran over 100 easily on my 2002 and got there quick. Should be even quicker now with the mods
