Mercury parts & online EPC

Ribs Marine

Just thought I'd post this link in case people have not seen it. Mercury used to have their own EPC online but this one you can actually order the parts as well. Also very handy for getting part numbers then ordering from USA

Found them recently, bought an oil filter. Excellent service. Invoice from RIBS Marine, packing note from Barrus. Price & carriage reasonable. Catalogue seemed easy to use once I'd got the hang of it.

Whether I'll think prices are reasonable at the end of the season when I give my water pump a major overhaul - if I can get the bottom end off - remains to be seen.

Same here, your paying the RRP but your going to at most places anyway. At least you can sit at home and get prices, look at drawings, get part nos. etc.

Yep! They're the only people I've found - outside of America - that I can do that. My nearest Mercury dealer is now a 200 + mile round trip and I'd have to pay RRP there. Carriage from RIBS is much cheaper.

Works fine for me. BTW you need to read their instructions carefully, You have to register, download a program for viewing the drawings etc.

Martini, I registered a few days ago and installed plugins ok, I believe the site was just temporarily offline last night for maintenance ir similar.
Works fine this morning, very useful and well designed site.
