Default 1999 Yamaha 250 OX66 Engine Price Reduced!

1999 Yamaha 250 OX66 for sale. 2-stroke EFI runs great. Engine comes with all controls and digital gauges, factory books, and Yamaha repair manual. Engine is currently mounted on my boat but just bought new engine so this one has to go. I will be removing the engine next week so I will sea trial the engine for whoever wants to check it out. Boat is in the water in Ocean City, NJ. Boat is a 23 formula and the boat tops out at 50mph so I havent had any problems with the engine. The engine starts right up the first time and doesn't burn oil. I just bought a new motor which is why I am selling. These engines are very reliable and still sought after, very reliable. It comes with 3 new low pressure filters as shown in pictures. This is for a whole package everything to be mounted comes with oil tank and all. Buy this motor and its ready to mount and go. I will also include a brand new set of 10 foot Yamaha battery cables. I am not sure how many hours are on the motor e-mail lonesurfer87@aim.com or call (609) 335-2149 Jay or Jason at (609) 335-2972 $2300 OBO make me an offer this motor has to go.

ENGINE COMPRESSION: Starboard Top 100PSI, Middle 105PSI, Bottom 100PSI
Port Top 105PSI, Middle 105PSI, Bottom 90PSI

I striper fished this boat all fall and I still use this motor on the boat. It will be removed next week so if you want to come take a ride and see how it runs feel free just try and do it in the next couple days.

$2300 I think it's worth more in parts. Comes with prop, controls, digital gauges, oil tank, Original manual, Yamaha repair book. And I will even sea trial the boat in the next two days before I take her out of the water. This is the best situation for buying a motor no surprises. You get to see and hear her run! The cheapest one around is $4000 from what I've found with just an engine not even a prop let alone controls. If you just need the motor I can work something out to get the price down.

Was that a cold compression reading? If so may want to do anouther. Good rule of thumb anything > than 7psi diff watch for trouble. If the moter has been sitting up this may be the reason. If not there may be a stick ring on bottom cylinder.

Thank You that's why it is priced accordingly. I just pulled the boat today and the engine is being removed in the next couple days. She ran great on the way to the ramp. Started right up and it was about 40 degrees out. Somebody is going to get one hell of a deal!!!! If you just want the engine I can work a different price out with someone I'm pretty flexible.

That is a great deal! Usually if compression #'s are w/in 15% of each other (& w/in normal range), then no worries.

Bly - what are you replacing w/, and I hope you plan to post up some repower perf. #'s?

That is a bargan Those are great motors and are not bad on fuel. I had that same motor for 7 years. You are correct it is worth more than that in Parts.

Prop, Lower unit, Controlls/guages, VST pump, O2 sensor, power head....

You should up yoour price.
