Great Engines

Your dealer will be in a place to give you good advice on running in when it is delivered. from my own experience of running in an opti 150 (same block as yours) it is important to get the free 10 hour service done on time (as it can invalidate your warranty) . I think th eservice is more or less a gearbox oil change. but you have to do itor they can bounce the warranty.

Also try and get from your dealer some confirmation of what type of engine rev limitation is in place, I have found very conflicting reports from opti guys , but i do know the mechanics all like to say it's ben overeved youre a very bad opti owner.

whether this is a techinque they us to try and get the upper hand in the negotiations or whether it is a part of the warranty voiding is well worth finding out from Bembridge.........The mechanics I have dealt with have all been mainland guys but it's worth finding out!

You wont find that on google will you. TD might be able to give us an informed opinion on the limits of the limiters

Free 10 hour service! I paid for mine! Is this a dealer or a Mercury thing?

Maybe you do have to pay for it, I didn't but It might have been included in the price I paid

I think from memory the rev limit comes in at 6000 Rpm. But its quite clever. Initially it wont limit the rpm, it will just start the warning horns going and your instruments will say back off throttle. If you keep the throttle open it will then put the engine guardian on and start to limit your rpm, it will do this until you back off. Then i think it will switch the guardian off. Its a bit of a pain in the arse but it keeps the engine from blowing up which is probably a good thing in the long run!!. It can be quite annoying if you spend lots of time out of the water i tend to find that when the alarm goes off i have to keep looking at the gauges to make sure nothing expencive is happening!!
And dont quote me on the figures all from memory!!!.
