I was told that the hours of operation for a rebuild where counted at RPM's above 7000 @ 20Hrs.
When i bought it i was told it had done very little high revs as the 2007 ski season was generally very short lived and mostly rough
I have removed the reed chest to inspect the pistons from the rear and you can clearly see there is no cracking of the piston skirts (A common problem on any over-revved Merc)
Also i leakdown tested and compression tested all was A-1.
I also have boreascoped (Camera on a stick) it and the bore walls look like new.
In all its internal condition is VERY VERY good
so come on someone buy it!
