Yep Simon's was a really exceptional deal . Now and again they do come up from a seller that doesn't know the market to the nth degree as many do on here.
I really am pleasantly surprised, and I will be taking extra care with my engine... Perhaps it might be worth my while getting it maintained by my local marine engineer from now on rather than doing the work myself, just so it has a decent service record.

Thanks for the heads up. Is the Autolube anything to watch out for on the Yam 25hp or is it very reliable?

There was a 25hp Yam 2005 for sale for 600 recently, the buyer said it was noisy but hadn't got any worse when he used it, it sold a few days ago, now this engine appears on eBay, same year and from a seller who seems to "dabble" in selling engines etc etc, not saying they are the same, but maybe worth bearing in mind ......

Thanks. Hmm the one on ebay, i believe the seller is a dealer who has at least one other engine on ebay but a different ebay account but same phone number. Of course nothing wrong with that but the fact it is in London i cant drive down there if unsure at all, its just too far away for me.

you are literally guaranteed to have a good engine or your money back, it wouldn't bother me using paypal.

cheers

Yep look at the images closely showing scratches on the hood... it's the same engine... and a 900 uplift for.. I bet nothing other than an explanation "they all sound like that". As said above the latest seller is all over the net with outboards and boats for sale/sold.. a real closet dealer.

Well sort of... as long as paypal find in your favour but you can bet a crafty dealer will find a way of protecting themselves from chargeback.

Just a tip
If you take payment by PayPal and the buyer collects, then says they never, you have no proof of delivery and PayPal will find in the buyers favour
If it's collection only, cash on collection as per PayPal rules

Yep really important. I've had quite a few "collection only, payment in cash" sales of large items recently where the buyer has paid immediately by Paypal. I refund straight away and explain... usually they are fine but I've had a couple of grumbles over the years about this.
