I have a chance to pick up a 1955 Mercury Mark 25. It has new coils, points, condensors, fuel lines, plugs, and impellor. I do not know alot about these motors. Just looking for some infor on them. It is going on a 16 Lone Star Jonboat. The max rating is 25 for the boat.

I think it is a good price he was asking $250 for it.. Also I talked to a friend that worked at a boat dealership and he told me that the motors were not that good that Mec. had a weird guy working for them in those years and that things are different on the engines. Some left hand thread bolts and they even ran fine threads on some bolts. So I really do not know what to do.

To set it straight those old motors were built just like all opf mercs other ones. He was confused with the mercs that were built in the same year and I can't remember the names on them but I have one in my shed and its of a smaller h/p I don't even need a motor but at 250 and running with good spark and compression It would have went home with me.

I wish I would had told him to hold it, but I did not know that it was listed on the net for sell. I was sure he would have it still this afternoon but I was wrong. Oh well the search continues.
