What am I looking at?
Hi Randy, I recently burnt a piston on my old 235 Evinrude, I'm thinking Iíll go find a Mercury to replace it with. I did find a good deal on "a 200 EFI Bridgeport". A few Merc running friends tell me to stay away from the Bridgeport but none can tell me as to why, that is my first question, or is there anything wrong with them at all? Also, is there a source out there where I can get info on that motor, such as shop manuals. Any info setup would be helpful. '82 Hydrostream Viking V-pad (no Training wheels), 5" setback on Land & Sea hydraulic jack plate. I also have a 29 SRX and a 23 SRX, how will these work? Thanks so much for any help and I am glad to see you on the Hydrostream Reg. Randy Williams
