Hello antique outboard motor fans. I am curious if other AOMCI collectors and rebuilders have been having issues with the parts that have been purchased from Oldmercs.com. Over the past six months I have purchased lower unit kits (with gaskets, seals, and o-rings) for a KG7, Merc 700FGS, and Merc 800DR from Oldmercs.com and every kit has contained gaskets, seals, or O-rings that were the wrong size. Most notable were the water pump gaskets for the Merc 700 and Merc 800 that contained gaskets that were not even close to being correct. Attempting to contact Oldmercs.com is a waste of time. No one answers the telephone and voice messages are never returned. In each case I have had to order new gaskets from Marineengine.com to complete the rebuild projects. I was just curious if anyone else out there have had a similar issue and what there resolution was.
KG7, KH7, Mark 30 Tiller, Merc 400, Merc 700 FGS, Merc 800 DR
