Default Calling all optimax people

Okay here is what I have for sale.

2000 225 Optimax. Just serviced in May, 781+ maybe 25 hours on it. Runs flawlessly. Complete motor minus controls and propeller. $2,750 standard rotation

Counter rotating lower for a 225 optimax. Purchased from SEI, about two years ago. Paid $1295 plus tax. will sell for $800. I have the paperwork for it.

Another lower unit, standard rotation. The front piece where the shift shaft comes up is broken off and one bolt for the impeller housing. the top splines are rusty but with a wire wheel would be fine, no prop, $200.

1998 optimax engine on the boat, port engine that was part of the twin above. Apparently the previous owner that I bought this from cobbled a bunch of different year parts together so it will run, but not great. New tapper valve, compression between 90-105 on all cylinders. I have another powerhead that will go with this engine, no lower unit, no controls. You can probably make a good motor for this one with your spare time. New trim/tilt motor which works, black compressor on it, and I will throw in the box of parts off another 1998 optimax which has fuel rails, reeds, vst, oil tank, another trim/tilt unit. $2,000

I also have two engine top cowlings, one set of lower cowlings, and a mid section.

I am located in St. Petersburg, FL. I can run the starboard engine for you while it is on the boat. The port engine I can turn over to let you hear it. I have an engine hoist and can load any of this up for you.

If you need the controls, we can discuss further as I intend to repower.

I also have a pair of counter rotating 19 p mercury props, a 17 pitch standard rotation, and a 15 pitch standard rotation. All 15" diameter.

mid section with trim/tilt

seized powerhead with all good parts, 2000 year

cowling with another running powerhead under it minus the compressor and some injectors

this is the powerhead under the cowling

lower unit, standard rotation, needs two bolts drilled and tapped. no prop, front shift shaft block is broken

box of 1998 optimax parts

trim/tilt on the midsection. I have another motor if you do not like the rust, but it does still work.

Ask me any questions, my email is my username at gmail.

Alright, engine is off the boat. I want all this stuff gone. If you want to part this out or make good twins you can. Lower unit is included, key harnesses, dual control binnacle, all throttle and shift cables, one oil tank.

$1,800 for it all. You have to take it all. I am sure it is worth a ton more in parts but I am not interested in parting it out.

Counter rotating lower for sale! $750. SEI has some warranty time left. Water pump and oil were changed in may. Might have 20 hours on it since then.




I've sold the oil tank, one 8 pin wiring harness, 17 pitch prop, 4 gallons of oil, hydraulic steering.

I guess I'm parting out the big stuff.

Counter rotating lower unit sold.

Still have 3 powerheads, two midsections with trim/tilt assemblies, and a box full of parts.

Last call before I let the scrap metal guy take them.
