    Looking for Reliable Merc Engine Builder 2.5 200ff (help appreciated) Kentucky

    Iím in East Kentucky I have a efi 200 with one burnt hole. Sadly Iím convinced there isnít a decent mechanic within 300 miles. Iíve been burnt by shade tree and so called merc guru mechanics several times over the last couple years. I would like someone who would warranty and stand behind their work. Someone who at least knows what blind hole boring is. And can throw some simple goodies in the build such as Carson or Boyesen reeds, solid engine mounts and possibly a Brucato acu. Any reputable mechanics in Tennessee? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks God bless.

    James is very good. He is also very busy and does this part time , so if u want it done fast, he mite not b able to do that, i do know he's getting ready for the parker enduro ,and its got him covered up with everything else, he just finished 1 for me and has another he hasn't even opened the box up. If your in no rush , then he's the best, there's another feller closer to you also , is it dunn? Sumbody will know. If u need a # let me know

    I regrettably had to sell my ole Allison SST that I was restoring due to frustration from dealing with mechanics. Hopefully I can find a reliable builder to take on this 200 this winter.

    James is a great guy and knows his stuff hes done some machine work for me before. Its hard to find a good honest mechanic to work on these motors. My dad has done it for years and has showed me a lot over the years. Thats why now I just do everything myself except the machining. Be glad to help out if I can.
