Poster: Fishbait Subject: Re: Mercury Black Max 150 Rebuild?
Need some advice....I'm in Texas and have just found out that my compression is about 110 on the top two cylinders. The mechanic thinks they are scored and gave me a price of $2,200.00 to have the motor rebuilt. I understand that this motor is only worth $1,5.00 running.
Is that price out of line for rebuilding? Not sure what to do!? The boat is an 89 Champion 184DC and the carpet and gelcoat are looking rough. I was thinking that I should sell it before the rods go but I absolutely cannot in good conscience sell it to someone knowing that it is only a matter of time before it gives out. Any advice would be great because I am in a rock and a hard spot with this. Thanks for any input,
