Not yet , im gonna try my uncles spot in pt pleasant supposedly he is a merc expert , but then again i hear everyone is an expert (yeah right! ) it pisses me off that these supposed mechanics charge a fortune , and cant figure out shat ! I just stopped payment on the last mechanic for charging me 500 to tell me it was a stator , replaced the stator with a brand new one and it didnt make a difference ...

I swear by Anglers in Sea Bright. NEVER had a repeat or return in 4 engines over the past 30 years.

Used to use a Mercury Dealer/guy in Rumson and brought motor back 3 times the same summer for the same thing.
