I am looking at a used 05 Merc (Yamaha) 225 4 stroke to repower a stern drive boat.
The motor has 500-750 hours, was run in the salt.
There is a pair and they were removed for a repower, one is C and the other is CW, one of the motors developed a overheat issue, the other motor was still running OK.
Apperently these motors often have corrosion issues that require replacing the midsection.....
Any body running one of these?
