Low-cost big block repower from Mercury
New options to repower big block motors with quality reco engines.
Mercury says there’s some very good news for all those boaties looking to replace a big block engine.
Mercury Remanufacturing and MerCruiser said they have teamed up to develop a unique, low-cost way to upgrade to something much better with plenty of power, with either a:
* 383 Mag Stroker Bravo (fuel injected and rated at 350hp at the crankshaft); or,
* 357 Mag Bravo 4V (carburetted engine rated at 325hp).
"In the current economic climate, there’s a real need for a low-cost repower option and this is it," said David Meehan, director–MerCruiser Australia, New Zealand, Pacific.
"By doing this on a big scale, we can offer these exceedingly good reconditioned engines at a price in between the cost of a long block rebuild and a brand-new MerCruiser engine package. You can give your boat a new lease on life without breaking the bank.
"This is a great economical option for those boat owners who have still got those big block 7.4L, 454 and carburetted small-block V8 engines," Meehan said.
Because the engines are Mercury Reconditioned, owners can rest assured they’re first-rate, and they all come with a 12-month remanufacturing warranty, said the company.
Mercury said the offer gets even better because owners also have the choice of buying just the engine or opting for a turnkey package.
The Turn Key Package includes: New transom; New trim pump; New drive – Bravo 1, 2 or 3; Brave 3 propeller; New control box; New platinum cables; New analogue flagship guage kit, loom and keyswitch (tach/temp/pressure/volt/trim gauge); New steering actuator; New exhaust Y pipe kit; New elbow kit; and, New trim harness.
