Promax 300, Gorilla 3 lifter and trim/lifter Indicator

Hi all,

Seeing as the back seems to be falling off my boat i've decided to sell the single motor setup and go back to twins as that's what she's designed for

First up is the motor, it's a mariner badged promax 300, originally a '98 and has been factory rebuilt. Currently has the extension spacer in so could be setup as a 25 or 20" leg.
Has a cle or sportsmaster gearbox (not sure which!) with fatshaft, is left hand rotation.
The engine is immaculate inside and out, powerhead looks like new!

Second is the Stainless Marine gorilla 3 lifter, the pump mounts in the boat. This is in very good condition and is almost new, has a couple of scratches where it mates to the motor but otherwise is in lovely condition.

Third is a stainless marine trim & lift indicator, complete with all the sending units in polished stainless. The bezel is red, i have all matching dial bezels, handles and other bits to match if anyone wants them

To go with this i'll also include all the gauges you need, the twin ride guide steering system and controls so it's a complete setup ready to rig a boat.

Looking for 5k for the lot together, which i feel is a bargain, and i'll deliver the lot within reason, I'll be coming over to the UK anyhoo.

I will split the parts, but only once i've got a buyer for the motor.

Cheers, James

I'll consider offers on the 5k by the way, looking for around 4k for the engine, again, open to offers.

Cheers,

Thats gotta be bargain of the week!

I can sort a deal for anyone who wants the lifter with it, or will sell the lifter seperately once the engine is gone.

Give me a PM, i'm happy to discuss any offers...

Cheers, James

Ha ha, it'd be amusing while it lasts but i don't think it'd be the best combination... You could buy a bigger boat!

well willwood ran a 260 on his when he had it
but, im fairly sure 260's are a fair chunk lighter than that 300
mine sits a bit too low on the back as it is now
would be intresting to find out though, got to be good for mid to late 80's id imagine, with the right setup

Can now come with 20" right hand box!

Would be great to see it on a R18, i like that kind of craziness! Not sure what the weight difference is but i know they weigh more than a 260 being 3 litre!

If it helps anyone, I can now get a right hand rotation fleetmaster box for her with a 20" shaft for about 100 quid... May be prepared to add this for free... PM me

Cheers, James

Bumpski... last chance...

Any takers at £3200?

Don't forget i can now also supply this with a 20" right hand fleetmaster gearbox, low water pickup etc as usual.

Anyone who PM'd me about the Jackplate and trim gauge, can you PM me again, I managed to delete all my messages the other day! I'm happy to sell the other bits now as i know i'm definately not keeping a single motor.

Cheers, James

Hi Rob,

I'm looking for about £500 for the jack plate, I believe they cost around £1k-£1.5k new and shipped. I'm still working on getting a steering arm for you too!

Cheers, James

Hopefully so! I've been taking my time with getting things ready to rebuild so i know it's done properly. I'll get some more pics up in the build thread soon once i've got a spare second or two!
Can't wait for next season now!!
