Mercury 280 offshore turnkey, ready to go.

I am selling the motor cause I have so many other projects happening. I rather someone else get enjoyment out of it. Figured when I am ready for another race boat, I will build another one. All vendors I have listed are great people to work with. I have made many calls to them, and they all stand behind their work. If you buy the whole machine or just parts, I will give you all the contact information to go with it. I am selling this package as a whole, or parting it out.

Powerhead: Motor built by Chris Carson back to factory original last year. All cylinders have good compression. Block has been repaired. I did have the rev limiter removed, but engine has not seen over 8000rmps. Motor has around 20hrs on it.

Adapter: It's a single piece offshore adapter. It is setup to receive a ¾ pickup tube. I also added dry stacking the adapter, so the exhaust gases wont over heat the pump ruin it.

Midsection: 15" single ram midsection. This midsection was a 20" that was altered by Calhoun Marine / Chapman racing. They specialize in altering midsections. I had a snout added to it for better exhaust / sound.

Lower unit: It is a CLE lower unit with 1.87 ratio. It is the four holes which means it has the big carrier bearing. The drive shaft and output shaft "fat shaft" have both been replaced. Lower unit was overhauled by CK motor shorts out of Grand rapids MI last year. Water pump installed is the race ¾ tube housing. It can really push some water.

Alien cowl was bought from bobs machine shop. It has some surface scratches on top, but nothing structural.

Electric fuel pump comes with a 10 micron, and a 100 micron filter.

Hydraulic pump for single ram trim comes from bobs machine shop.

It also comes with a scanner so you can hook up to the computer and run diagnostics.

Video of it running:

Whole price 9200

Parting out price:
Powerhead with fuel pump, and scanner $7000.
Adapter $600
Midsection with hydraulic pump and hoses $2500
Lower unit with water pump and ¾ pickup tube: $2000
