Mercury Optimax Block and Bits!

Last year i have an engine failure on my 150 opti and now have the remains of the engine sitting at home.
The big end failed on the 3rd piston, resulting in the needle roller bearings passing through the intake port, and into the cylinder!
The cylinder eventually seized and the con-rod pulled out of the small end.
Clearly this piston, con road and cylinder are damaged beyond repair, however there may be plenty of salvageable bits left.

Included:
block
6 pistons (one destroyed)
two heads (one damaged)
crank
all con-rods
2 reed valve blocks (slight damage to one set)
bag of bits!

Very welcome to come and have a look (Totton - just outside Southampton)

offers around 120

James
