I see where you're coming from, but what about the fluid mechanics of the mix over the top of the "dam" & materials? If the microfiches on Ishop are anything to go by, Merc seemed to have about 6 goes at getting that piston right!

Have you got the serial number of the motor, and I'll see what I can find.

Unfortunately not, as both the disc & the sticker had dropped off whenI bought it.

I am told that all oversized pistons are backwards compatible tho', so the serial number should in theory be slightly irrelvant.

It's a mid 80s casing if that helps......

ish..... It's not the numebr I have been quoted, but does look like it's in the generic "piston" series of numbers. What does your book of words say that's for? (or is that what you have lying on a shelf?)

It actually supercedes to this.. 774-9137A14

No, don't have any laying around I'm afraid, thought I might have.

They retail at 116.52 + vat, but none in stock at Barrus.

As someone suggested earlier, Pro Marine is worth contacting, we use them and they're pretty good on prices and delivery.

That's the number I hoped you'd quote!

Shame. Not to worry.
