Re: Any pilots, or wanna be pilots on here?

I studied back in 1999 to get my fixed wing pilots license, but in 1992 I built a hot air balloon which I got my commercial license in.
My balloon is the silver one in center of pic

1963 Merc 1000 repair troubles

You need to look at a manual to see how to set timing. Those motors have a timing belt under the flywheel.
Good luck

Twisted Prop Shaft

I use to race those motors.
They have a chrome bore & are usually not rebuildable
A good motor will have 130 # + compression

1990 20 hp Mercury

I've had good luck with the old Mercs with no problems from the tiller-shift mechanism. The electronics can be hard to trouble shoot if not familiar with them.

Running outboard without lower unit?

Yes you can run it without lower on with water hooked up to it, done it before. Don't turn water on all the way,remember the size of the copper tube compared to your hose.

Mercury 200

The electronics can be a bit tricky some time but other than that they are good motors. I have a couple of that vintage.

Should I buyt his 25 HP motor?

So the end that connects to the fuel tank is "universal" with regards to OMC/Merc?
