  2. Actually it was Mercury that said to do the premix, design flaw with a plastic part in the oil pump, brilliant engineering, it melts! So at least maybe i'll be able to keep a powerhead in this thing ...
  3. Still waiting on boat mercury is rebuilding it, but now they are saying disconnect the oil injection and put the oil in the gas tank. Anyone ever hear of that solution before?
  4. Thank you mrrobalo! and was it a holiday inn express, I hope!
  5. I know the ignition was changed, not sure on the EFI, but I will ask, and in saying that I know that the engine has a setting for high and low on the timing and they had a tough time with the high speed timing so that really sounds like a possibility, and I do have twins and it has been the same motor so that is a possibility also, Will ask them to check and thanks to you both!
  6. Hi there this is a repost on a lost one, been through three powerheads in about 80 hours of runtime, driving me crazy, and that is at a mercury certified mechanic. Before the sat post disappeared someone had asked me if it was the same cylinder, but no first number three then number 6 and this time 0 comp on 4 and 25# on 2. Just wondering if anyone has an idea that I can put into the mechanics head 2000 merc 200 efi's Thanks!!
  7. Have the same problem and I have been chasing it for a year, mine is the opposite though standard rotation on my starboard does it and the port counter does not. If you figure it out please let me know, and thanks for answering a lot of my other questions!
  8. What shaft length should I have on this boat, 25" or 30"? Thanks!
  9. Thanks to you all, seems like the engines are mounted to high from all the feedback, so guess i'll take a w/e off fishing and get them slid down some. Again thanks to everyone!
  10. Thanks Steve, really what I am zeroing in on, looks like I have one more hole on the plate to go down and will do that, I appreciate everyone's help and comments!
  11. That one is sitting in Tokyo somewhere already, but my fuel for the summer is paid for!
  12. Good day! Perfect weather, (not today yesterday) up on a kite with a pogie on as bait in and out of the water, new style to me but worked like a champ. Southwest stellwagen, followed out looking for feeding humpback whales, motored up cut the engines sent out kite line and the 80 weights attached don to the pogies, And as a bonus while waiting pulled in a couple of 40 pound stripers from the bottom jigging no less! Bluefin at 75 inches 223 lbs.
  13. Looks like a great day and certainly a great haul!
