Bummer dude......maybe worth paying him a little extra $$$ to go over the whole thing and make sure its all up to snuff so that you don't have to call him out again and spend time off the water.

Even though Outboards typically don't have hour meters, any idea of the number of hours since your rebuild?

A little carb work comes with the territory! Those 2-strokes will run forever with a little TLC!

JohnnyB- the new outboards with electronic ignition can have just as much stored info as the EFI GM motors. Max revs, hours, knock input, etc.

JimN....I'll store that fact away in case I or anyone I know is shopping for an outboard in the future....

A few years ago, we were looking for center consoles and found one with triple Mercury 300x's. The boat was b!tch'in, but as soon as they hooked it up to the scan tool, we found out that the two outside motors had been over-revved and overheated. Pretty cool printout on from the scan tool though. Here is the way the one of the motors read on the boat we ended up purchasing:

2002 YAMAHA SALTWATER SERIES V066

S/N:

AT 0-749 RPM - 8 HOURS
AT 750-1499 RPM - 6.2 HOURS
AT 1500-2999 RPM - 11.6 HOURS
AT 3000-3499 RPM - 3.5 HOURS
AT 3500-3999 RPM - .5 HOURS
AT 4000-4499 RPM - .1 HOURS
AND AT 5000-5499 RPM - 0 HOURS

TOTAL RUN TIME: 30.3 HOURS
