  • Motor Advice...

    I need the $$$ for projects and don't want to give away, but I also want to move these motors fast. What do you think is a fair price for a pair of strong running '93 Precision Blend 200's? I know they are old, not desired, and there's probably not large market for. NADA has "Average Retail" of $2,985 each, and low retail at $2,655; I think both numbers are a little high. Cosmetically the motors need some attention, but under cowl looks clean and good. Tilt and steering needs new seals (both work just leak) and gauges need gaugesaver work, but I am looking to sell everything; counter rotating motors, SS props, rigging, and steering. I do not know hours and haven't ran alot, but they really seem to run great.

            as for the seperator, id start taking screws out til it came apart, just remember how it goes back together hahaha.

            Used engines are tough, depending on location you may sell them easier. I had a buddy with twin 150 carbureated mercs (2001 is era) ran great we ended up taking 1,000 each for them. Tons of tire kickers and time wasters. youd be better off throwing each one on a boat and sell it whole.

                I wouldn't spend a lot of time on that filter setup, the spin on or racors are more serviceable. You can probably find cartridges for that one but not easily. Older used Yamahas have the best resale value of all the motors. Many of them end up over seas in the third world countries. If they were mine I would ask 2k each and not separate them right away. Once you sell the standard rotation the counter is a bit harder to sell. GLWS

                  That my friend is an old school Perko Model 299 Fuel Filter. You can still buy the replacement elements on Ebay or amazon. The top unscrews to service and the bottom is just a drain.

                          Chuck, you unbolt the unit from the boat, then you throw it in your trash, being careful you drain the fuel first..

                          Throw the engine on ebay with some compression #'s for $6k and test the waters. I had better luck selling my twins separately.
