HELP I THINK MA 100hp IS DEAD!!

Hi I have my 100hp Mercury in with Yampower in Glasgow and the initial prognosis is not good. It could cost up to 2k to put right. Not sure of details but the hydraulic ram is spewing oil,its spewing 2 stroke oil, its spewing unleaded, there's a water leak and some diaphram is shot.Does any one know of anyone selling a 100 to 125 hp? Prefer Mercury or Mariner, used but must be in super condition. Any ideas???

Do you know what sort of money is in it and where is it located? This sounds interesting. Also hours clocked,condition and shaft length.
Regards Ewan.

I think saw that a couple of weeks ago when I went in for some Yamlube..... Nice rib!

TBH it sounds like all your rubbery bits have hit their life expectancy simultaneously, which is why I replaced absolutely everything rubber on mine whether it needed or not when I rebuilt it. That flavour of engine is a bit of a servicing PITA, as the diaphragm (4 worth on the 60) needs a complete exhaust side removal, to get at it so there's 12-16 probably rusted solid bolts' worth of time and two gaskets to add to that 4..... The other bits are a likely similar story, as those engines were remarkably light for the horses, but mostly because every compoment does three jobs!

There is another way of looking at it - For sub 2K are you really likely to get something of 100 gee gees that is in a better condition & known history? In short, that's why I rebuilt mine.... Difference is for 2k you'll get it back this side of next christmas

Are you sure you were looking at my rib????? Still need to do quite a bit of work to it. But should get it back tomorrow. If any of the bits off the Mercury are any use to you just let me know.

9d280 comes from a low starting point! If the tubes still resemble the original colour, the engine runs without black smoke or pistons flying out the back then "its a goodun"
