Remanufactured Mercury 175HP 2.5 Liter
The 2.5 liter Mercury is the king of the outboard racing circuit. Although we do not build racing outboards we are impressed with any motor design that can be run at very high RPMs with out coming apart. This is a very reliable and powerful outboard for the recreational boater as well.
Mercury created the 76 degree v6 design in 1976, the other outboard manufacturers did not catch up until the 90's. We found that the few failures with this class of outboards are due to fuel contamination or oil injection failure. Fuel contamination can be prevented by installing a Racor filter and checking it regularly. As with all Mercury outboards we build we have removed the oil injection.
Benefits: You can expect low gas consumption with this outboard. It very light weight (395lbs) compared to the newer 4 stroke outboards. Due to the popularity of Mercury products parts and service availability is easily accessible.
All our remanufactured outboards come with new decals, a new cover gasket, stainless steel tilt tube, and our 7 part paint system.
