Yes I bought the Mercury from fleebay, went down to Bolton to collect it and see it running. Started up first pull and ran nice, the guy I bought it off seemed genuine and of good character, House was tidy too, so generaly a good sign. There was no fuel can with it as he said he needed it for his other outboard.
One thing though, is the paint finish on these outboards good as it's not very smooth and there's some bolts with paint on and some that are bare stainless steel??? no corrosion though and the engine is clean.
drifted off subject there, so yes I need a fuel can, a decent one at a good price.
Seen this one, what do you think
ps, any advice or tips on this outboard would be much appreciated
