1977 Mercury 70hp long shaft, remote, manual trim, freshwater clean ol For Sale


(Little Falls)

711 13th Ave NW

For sale a 1977 Mercury 70hp long shaft 20″ motor. This is being sold as is with no warranty. This is a older motor we took in on trade. This started and ran it shifts smooth and pumps water. We went through the motor and performed a leak down test and all three cylinders were at less than 6% which is great. A leak down test measures the air leaking past the piston and rings by placing air pressure into the spark plug and rotating piston to top dead center. This percentage is measured with a gauge with 100% leak down the worst and 0% the very best. Most engines of any displacement have some percentage of leak down. However you want all cylinders equal or close to equal and once it gets above 20% you will have running issues most of the time.

We fired engine it and has spark on all cylinders. This shifted ok and there were no signs of water or metal shavings in the lower unit. This was a clean older motor we got in, The customer was using with no problems just the boat was rotten around it.

Every winter we make multiple trips to Florida from Minnesota. In our travels we make stops along the way for parts and motor deliveries. If this is something that appeals to you, please reach out**
