Is there a buzzer on the motor on the 200?

The commander 2000 controls I had on the 4m had the buzzer built into them and no buzzer on the engine.

No Buzzer

It would appear that the only things connected to the loom are the ign. switch, the tach, tilt switch and tilt gauge. Have managed to find the colour code for Merc wiring ie. what does what. Guess it is going to be head inside console with the old AVO and ring it all out. Just like repairing a leak under the kitchen sink.
According to Mercury, 1 beep when you turn ign. on is a system check, beep beep beep is oil low or not working, and continuous beep is high temp.

merc wires, tan/blu = temp, black/ yel = kill switch, black= ground, gray = tach, red = constant power, yel/red= N safety, purp= key power, yel/red= starter

this should cover the harness, on the trim, green is for grass= down, blue is for sky=up, mite be green with white, and blue with white

I WAS having a good day

Got started early this morning.
1.Removed and clean both in line water separator and Mercury filter/ separator
2. Purchased a set of heavy duty flush muffs and fired up engine for the first time and it idled great.
3. Discovered that the consol felt a bit loose. Found the stainless bolts that secured to deck and tightened. Fixed problem.
4. Installed small 4 amp battey charger under battery hatch to keep it topped of while on driveway.
5. Found inspection hatch to get to fuel tank sender. Tank appears to be stainless
6. Formulated a plan to install second battery.
7. Received E mail telling me that the Tuff coat tube paint is on it's way
8.Will be collecting the overhauled hyd. steering cylinder tomorrow.

Decided I was tired and deserved a beer; but would do one more easy task: remove prop. and lube the splines. Found approx. 20-30 feet of fishing line wrapped around the shaft behind the prop. It had welded itself to the shaft seal. Despite carefull removal half the shaft seal came of with it. Oh bother, now I have to drop the bottem end.

Should I do it myself

I am going to take the boat to the local Merc. dealer anyway for a service. I am considing doing the lower end repair myself, before I take it in. How big a job is it? will include impeller replacement also. Has anyone done it on a 200 Merc? Last time I did this it was on a 50 Merc. 35 years ago

Personally if there's any evidence of salt water corrosion I'd drop the lower unit and take it in to a shop for someone else to do.

Thanks for the reply Nos. There is no evidence of any corrosion. Have found an exploded view of the gearcase and it looks as though I can replace the two seals ( inner and outer) by removing the bearing carrier, which is held in with a big arse internally castelated nut which may need soaking in release oil and a made up spanner to remove. Has anyone done this or should I bite the bullet ( wallet) and have the whole gearcase overhauled. Any input from Fred on this one? Have already soaked it down with Break Free ( CLP) just in case I get brave enough to do it myself.
Thank you
T.

According to reseach I have done this is a well known problem caused by fishing line tearing up the outer seal.
