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.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
