Regular engine maintenance is essential to ensuring your engine will provide you with years of trouble-free operation. As a Mercury Authorised Dealer and Service Centre we have the expertise and training to handle all of your engine maintenance service and needs.
Sometimes, infrequent use may not alert you to minor maintenance requirements that could eventually lead to starting or reliability problems right in the middle of your valuable recreational boating time. That’s why it’s important to have your engine inspected by us at least once a year – even if you haven’t reached 100 hours, to ensure you get maximum pleasure and carefree running out of your engine.
Recommended Service Intervals for all Marine Engines and Jet skis
It is important to follow a regular service interval period (once every 12 months) because in many cases you may clock up less than 100hrs of running during a year.
The months/hours specified for service intervals are in relation to the engine purchase date and are recommended for:
3 months (from Purchase Date) or 20 hrs
12 months (from Purchase Date) or 100 hrs
2 years (from Purchase Date) or 200 hrs
3 years (from Purchase Date) or 300 hrs
4 years (from Purchase Date) or 400 hrs
5 years (from Purchase Date) or 500 hrs
When Repowering you must ensure that:
The engine fits within the existing space.
The weight of the engine should not be in excess of the unit being replaced.
There must be sufficient clearance around the new engine for inspection and maintenance access.
A successful Repower project involves two equally important decisions.
Firstly, selection of the right engine for your boat and your needs, and
Secondly, the installer – We are a Mercury and Mercruiser Certified Service Centre our staff are trained and equipped to handle all of these questions and more.
