Hello, my name is Marc Donnelly. I call myself MercuryMarc and I love old Mercs. I love boating on the water with my vintage boats and motors. I live in southeastern Michigan. I can help turn your old Mercury outboard into a high performing classic.  To offer you the best performance motor, I have partnered with a former APBA (American Power Boat Association) stock outboard racer, Chuck Petersen. Chuck brings years of experience in rebuilding classic Mercury powerheads. Each powerhead and connecting rod gets machined to certain specifications only after each part passes a thorough inspection. The connecting rods and pistons are then balanced before installation.

Once the powerhead is handed off to get rebuilt, I then can concentrate on disassembling the rest of the motor.  All parts are inspected, reused or replaced if needed. The lower unit gets a new set of seals, bearings and O-rings. All parts are stripped of the old paint down to the bare aluminum. I use a two-part epoxy primer and a topcoat of single stage urethane paint on all painted parts.  Re-chroming of any parts is included, if required, and a new oval emblem and decals are added for the final touch.

I know this could be the only classic Mercury you will ever have restored, therefore I take great pride to offer you a step above a stock restoration and a wonderful experience when it comes to turning your old Merc into a beautifully lasting motor.

Thanks,

Marc Donnelly

Nice Marc. Chuck does incredibly thorough and impressive work, and should be a good complement to the awesome work you're doing. Is this going to help speed your backlog along?
