One of my buds in the Carolina's who is an active AOMCI member, has been into restoring Mercs (and racing them) for years, and is trying to downsize his collection. He sent me a note and mentioned this very interesting powerhead that he would like to find a new home for. Here is the basic info:
Merc 500, std bore, fresh rings and seals, big taper crank, etc. Also has a 2lb race flywheel, hot red Merc mag, bottom cowling, square top starter plus a few other race-oriented pieces are also available.
The powerhead is in the Wilmington, NC area.
I'm not really into the four cylinder Merc motors but I thought I'd see if anyone around here might have an interest in a fully refreshed, pretty much turnkey powerhead.
