88 or 89 merc powerhead

5 posts in this topic

I just bought a 25 hp mercury motor. I think it's a 88 or maybe a 89. It's needs a new block. Can anyone tell me what years will interchange with this block? Does anyone know where I can find one? confused.gif

You cant go by the year, you have to check on the Serial number, and then check with Mercury. I am guessing it will have to be 89 or newer to do what you want. I have an 87 that I am getting worked on, and I have to look up the guy in the Twin Cities to get his number for you, he is very good. Will get back to you later.

If you do some searching online you'll find it. It's not too hard of a search.

      Got more picks? Not sure with just this one. First glance, looks like an emerald shiner. Welcome to FM!

      I have an Eskimo and love it. I fish a lot and punch a lot of holes most outtings. I had to rebuild the carb this year, but I've had the auger for 4 years or so... Always starts no matter how cold...I've drilled with jiffy and can't stand them... The blades on the Eskimos last a long time and are cheap when you have to replace them... I drilled with a SM last year and really liked it, but they are so pricey. I got my z51 shark dirt cheap ($220 shipped to my door) from Glens Army Navy in Rapids. I'd go Eskimo or Strikemaster if I was you.
