Didn't know about any recall re. regulator/rectifier though, just had to buy another. I thought it was £300 plus as it comes with almost all of the engine wiring loom.
I've heard about that cooling grommet thingy, but mine's ok. There was also a problem with the early ones of corrosion of the adaptor plate which joined the Mercury leg to the engine. There are no signs of that trouble on mine.
Had I not had the gearbox problem, I'd still be happy with my Merc.
I have though, just bought a new Honda 90 - and now I'm broke.
The label that Andrew shows is, I think on the flywheel cover. Mine gives the 2000 date. On the pics, the fuel pumps are different from mine and there's a different fuel filter. The pics don't show the intake side clearly, so I can't compare mine and that one. Apart from that mentioned, it all looks very familiar.
