    I need some advice. A local dealer has a new 2000 merc 15 (NIB). not the best price, but I haven't made any offer yet. Think it is like a "real" new motor? think it needs a water pump, rubber hoses, other stuff? Think it's worth fooling with? What does anyone think a fair price is? A new 2010 Nissan 15 hp tiller is about $2250 on ebay. How much is a new in box 2000 merc 15 worth? I was thinkin' $1500 or less. Oh yeah... the dealer said only an in house 1 year warrenty ( Merc won't warrenty a 10 year old motor) Any thoughts welcome.

    Not a bad price for a never been run 15 hp.

    They'll be hard to come by in that condition. All you'll be getting is those damned 4 strokes

    merc.would only warrant it 1 year any way.make thr dealer run it before you buy it.but there has got to be a reason why the motor has not been sold before now.i bought a new one in 99and loved the motor.go on line and see if there are any service bullitens on that model.
