Greetings all - The result of the epic saga of my engine
knock was that i found a different yard to do the work, and had them install a reman Mercruiser supposedly rebuilt by Mercury
. It is the 5.0 Alpha, with carb, no fuel
injection. When i picked up the boat, i asked for any documentation
that came with the motor
, and they said there was no literature or documentation
that comes with the motor
from the distributor. I found it hard to believe that there is nothing for the customer to read or refer to with a reman motor done by Mercury
. No documented break-in procedure, no listing of serial
number, no specs on oil
, plugs, etc...
Are they telling the truth about the situation, or is something fishy here? if there is supposed to be some written matter to give the consumer, what is it? What can i specifically tell them to get from the company and give me.
If there is no paperwork meant to pass on to the end user, can anyone point me to any tips on breakin, specs, etc... for that motor?
