1999 Mercury 225 3.0 liter 20″ shaft with broken crankshaft. It was running quite well until it started knocking. Sadly this motor came from a dealer and the guy said it ran perfectly. It ran on the hose at idle once installed. However, upon slight acceleration the motor started rapping within a few hundred feet of taking off. My guess is that the crankshaft was fractured or already broken but not sheared off. The motor had a new water pump installed and serviced prior to the arrival so I am not sure if the selling dealer was aware of the issue. Regardless, it is in pieces. The pistons, rings and connecting rods look great. It is a clean fresh water motor. The gearcase has the larger diameter prop shaft and low water pick up. All systems were functioning as they should. Will palletize to ship. As is, no warranty or returns.
