That appears to be the engine to put life back into the San Marino.

Just been up on a mercury marniner model update coarse and done some updates on the 300 verado!
be going back up on wednesday for the computer diognostic coarse so I will see what I can find out about the 350..
as for 175 on tiller control I saw the tiller and sod that.. Although you can have power steering connected.
alot of commen faults with the verado. MAP sensors splitting and front casing on super charger wearing early and getting few rattles. easy sorted but an interesting day. will be good to computer flash resets on wednesday.

Funny all the Hype & promo stuff but just over a week ago for the new motor then !!!!!


What a difference a week makes

>>>>>>><<<<<<<<<
Mercury Marine temporarily shutdown operations this week
Mercury Marine temporarily shutdown all manufacturing operations in Fond du Lac, Wis., this week to better manage its inventory supply line.

“Our mantra is balancing demand with supply,” company spokesman Steve Fleming said this morning in a telephone interview.

The engine maker gave nearly 2,000 hourly workers the week off, without pay. Fleming says salaried employees and those working on propellers are still on the job. The company has a total of about 3,200 employees in Fond du Lac.

This week’s shutdown comes after 48 employees volunteered to take temporary layoffs starting Feb. 18. Those workers will get their jobs back in June. Fleming said more work shutdowns and temporary layoffs may be necessary later in the year, depending on the market conditions.

"We anticipate 2008 to be a challenging year for the U.S. boating industry,” he said. “We’re going to continue to monitor the situation and if the situation calls for us to have additional layoffs, we could.”

I asked about production of the 200xs on the Merc stand at the Miami show. I got passed around to a few guys, but the final answer was that's it's very unlikely, although they can do a longblock.
